Physicians today are faced with many obstacles due to recent regulations created by Health Care Reform. Some practitioners are asking themselves, “How do I provide outstanding quality health care in the face of an increasingly complex regulatory system? Where am I going to find the time and resources to implement an EMR system?” Many doctors are in the precarious position of having to manage and troubleshoot complex IT, EMR and billing systems. Keeping up to date with the latest HIPAA and HITECH compliance and security requirements is expensive, time consuming, and difficult.
Atlantic.Net believes that the business of health care exists to facilitate the practice of good medicine. Efforts should be focused on and directed towards healing the sick, not managing their IT infrastructure. As physicians in the community become tasked with the technical aspect of running their practices, they are focusing less on healing the sick. With more resources becoming available to practitioners, however, the opportunities for their practice’s growth is increasing exponentially. With an increase in patients and a decreased interest in managing their data, many are considering outsourcing their EMR and other IT strategies to Service Providers in order to shift focus back onto the patient.
Fortunately, Atlantic.Net can help. We have worked with various medical groups across the country and have experienced firsthand the increasing challenges that health care providers face.

Medicare providers stand to receive $44k in tax rebates by implementing EMR /paperless office technology into their practice. Whether you are an individual physician, a group practice or a hospital with multiple physicians, full compliance with the new HIPAA EMR requirements will pay for itself. The time to begin instituting EMR technology into your practice is now – reimbursements from the government will decrease over the next few years, with your full opportunity for reimbursement available only in 2010.
