The CMS bonus deadline for implementing electronic prescribing technology is quickly approaching. Is your practice prepared to meet the looming deadline?
Many providers may be startled by the following statistics:
- According to a recent study, electronic prescribers spend 50% less time on refills/renewals.
- Approximately 7,000 Americans die each year from preventable medication errors.
- In 2009, physicians who appropriately implement and utilize electronic prescribing will be entitled to a bonus equal to 2% of their annual Medicare collections.
On December 5, 2008, at 12:00 p.m. EST, MTBC will be sponsoring a Knowledge Sharing Webinar entitled E-PRESCRIBING: SOLUTION IMPLEMENTATION AND EARNING YOUR MEDICARE BONUS. This webinar will provide an overview of the key facts your practice must understand regarding e-prescribing regulation changes, implementing e-prescribing technology and earning a CMS bonus in 2009.
