Hospitals continue to look for cost-effective strategies to align more closely with physicians as healthcare moves towards the ACO and medical home delivery models. For the most part, hospitals have adopted the employed-physician model by purchasing practices.
We believe investing in healthcare technologies such as Mitochon’s free integrated EHR/HIE/PHR platform can create clinically integrated networks of independent practices and enable the ACO and medical home delivery models.
This cloud-based platform has already been successfully integrated into various HIEs including Medicity at Hoag Hospital, providing bi-directional flows of clinical information for care coordination and referrals.

CMS has released the final rule for changes to the 2011 Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program. Without these changes, eligible professionals who did not meet the electronic prescribing requirements in 2011 would be subject to a 1% payment adjustment for 2012.
The three main changes for the 2011 eRx Incentive Program include:
1. Allowing the use of Certified EHR Technology to report for the 2011 eRx incentive
2. Additional hardship exemptions for the 2012 eRx payment adjustment
3. Deadline extension to request a hardship exemption for the 2012 eRx payment adjustment to November 1, 2011
One of the additional hardship exemptions includes if an eligible professional adopts a certified EHRand registers for the 2011 Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
As in Massachusetts, we’re a “New Product Paradigm” and have enabled “connectivity from every stakeholder to every stakeholder” including the ability to manage the “unconscious in the emergency room” use case.
