NYC REACH, the federally funded Regional Extension Center overseen by the Primary Care Information Project at the NYC Health Department, has added seven more EHR vendors to its partner list, and now supports a total of 12 EHRs. By expanding the list of partner companies, the extension center offers personalized Meaningful Use support to a growing number of EHR users in New York City.

 

EHR vendors went through an open, competitive process and met strict requirements beyond the national Meaningful Use certification standards. After closely examining the companies and products, NYC REACH officials selected seven EHR systems:
 
• Amazing Charts
• Criterions
• CureMD
• MedAZ

• Office Practicum
• OmniMD
• Pulse
 

“Doctors in New York City use a variety of EHRs, and we want to offer our subsidized training to as many practices as possible. Partnerships with new EHR vendors allow us to help more practices achieve Meaningful Use and improve care regardless of the system they use,” explains Acting Assistant Commissioner Dr. Jesse Singer. The NYC REACH Meaningful Use curriculum teaches physicians the qualifications for incentive payments, measures they must meet, and how to attest to Medicaid or Medicare for payment.

 

NYC REACH chose systems that not only meet the requirements for Meaningful Use, but also give physicians tools to practice preventive medicine, manage chronic conditions, and coordinate care. Doctors shopping for an EHR can receive free vendor selection assistance to help identify a product that is right for their practice.

 

NYC REACH offers three levels of support for doctors using an EHR or looking to adopt a system.
