eHealth Connecticut Regional Extension Center | EMR Incentives

In order to facilitate the adoption of health information technology (HIT), Connecticut has one Regional Extension Center (REC). The eHealth Connecticut Regional Extension Center was created under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act’s Health Information Technology Extension Program. Specifically, the purpose of the this Regional Extension Center is to provide education, outreach, and technical assistance to help providers in Connecticut, allowing these physicians to improve the quality and value of care they furnish by exceeding meaningful use of electronic health record (EHR) systems. This center is also dedicated to the broader long-term goal developing Health Information Exchanges.

The first step toward achieving meaningful use is the selection and purchase of certified EHR software, a challenging task for physicians due to the large number of vendors and the complexity of the many software options available. The eHealth Connecticut Regional Extension Center can play an important role in guiding physicians through the implementation and use of EHR software they have purchased.

Some Regional Extension Centers have also chosen to offer a list of selected EHR vendors (also known as preferred EHR vendors) that have been prequalified or otherwise vetted. These EHR vendors include a select group of EMR (electronic medical records) companies that underwent selection process and have demonstrated a commitment to the health information technology mission. In order to be selected, the electronic health records vendors on this list agreed to a higher base level of functionality and interoperability that will enable practices to achieve meaningful use and best participate in the Health Information Exchange. In many cases, Regional Extension Center members may receive group purchasing discounts, discounted pricing overall, and standardized terms and conditions by the EHR vendors to facilitate adoption quickly and smoothly.

Center for the Advancement of Health IT of Rural and North Florida does not recommend any preferred EHR vendors.
