under the plan proposed by the government for the EHR first year(2011) Medicare incentives will be 18000 dollars not chump change for sure.I am looking at how we could get this revenue.
Ideal way would be we bring all records on line for the appointments in each month.This will give us a monthly income and 12 month work.
we have to come up with costs and other parameters.
Insurance providers and other principals might have incentive to provide software and or hard ware and physical infrastructures for the projects.There could be cloud computing solutions and data space leasing agreements.
Distributed systems would be best and safest.Electronic prescription companies could play a role.As it is a requirement for the meaningful use.
