United Kingdom-based GE Healthcare is licensing its proprietary Change Acceleration Process (CAP) training and offering its product knowledge certification program in an effort to provide support for Regional Extension Centers (RECs).

Seventy RECs will be selected to furnish assistance, education and outreach to primary care physicians and other providers to help them select and implement certified EHR technology to improve the quality and value of care. According to GE Healthcare, REC applicants cite physician recruitment as one of the most critical barriers to EMR adoption.

The company says it will share its experience and best practices with RECs on how to market and promote the benefits and full potential of an EMR so that RECs can develop their physician recruitment strategies.
