Electronic Health Records and Clinical Trials: An Incentive to Integrate

As we wait for the federal government to finalize important sections of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), there is a lot of talk about the financial incentives for implementing electronic health records (EHR). And understandably so. Practices that implement an EHR under the federal government’s guidelines stand to gain nearly $50,000 in incentives over the next five years.

A topic that hasn’t been as hotly discussed is using information gleaned from EHR software to participate in clinical trials. We think this should play a larger role in deciding whether or not a practice should purchase EHR software. Why? Participation in clinical trials has the potential to net a profit of hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Nowthat’s an incentive to purchase an EHR. (CONTINUE)

    English Translation:It is becoming more and more common to have meditating on jobs and schools. In the past there were many prejudices about meditation and thought that it was something that belonged to yogis who lived up in the Himalayan mountains. Today we in the West have been wiser and know that it has many benefits for our well-being to give ourselves a fifteen minute break.
