You may be able to earn bonuses through Medicare (up to $44,000) or Medicaid (up to $63,750) over the next several years if you demonstrate "meaningful use" of an electronic medical record (EMR) system in your practice. This may be just the time for you to move from paper records to EMRs.
Find out what to look for in an EMR system, how to compare the various vendors' systems , and how to make an EMR system work for your practice at TMA's seminar and vendor demonstrations in Houston Oct. 22 and in San Antonio Oct. 29. You'll also learn how to qualify for the bonuses - and avoid the penalties Medicare eventually will impose on physicians who don't use EMRs.
