The American Association of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) Annual Conference is coming up; April 14–17, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, Florida. More than 500 orthopaedic executives and their staffs will be in attendance. Will we see you there?
As an orthopaedic provider, your business relationship with your electronic health records (EHR) vendor is central to the success - or lack thereof - of your practice. EHR adoption has become ubiquitous this decade, making it more important than ever to have a reliable system that delivers uninterrupted workflows, relevant data (with no clutter) and real-time charge capture to your clinic.
Your electronic health record (EHR) is much more than just an upgrade over paper-based record keeping. It’s also integral to a more productive orthopaedics practice capable of earning payments (and avoiding penalties) from EHR incentive programs.
One of the most significant developments for orthopaedics in 2017 was the initial publication of the 2018 final rule for the Quality Payment Program, originally authorized under the Medicare and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).
