Malvern, Pa.-based Greencastle Consulting, a project management and consulting services firm, announced a new service offering: ARRA readiness assessment.

According to the company, hospital and health system customers can use the new service to assess how ready they are with regards to the variables associated with “meaningful use” of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), as well as their ability to comply with the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

Greencastle ARRA says its four-week readiness assessment evaluates technology certification, clinician adoption of technology, quality data captured by that technology, and HITECH security and privacy factors that contribute directly to the ability to achieve ARRA criteria. In addition to surveying attitudes and beliefs among end users, executives and others, Greencastle reviews an organization’s current project inventory and strategic planning efforts across the core areas affected by the legislation, it touts.
