Palo Alto-based HP has introduced a new program to support and accelerate the adoption of electronic health records (EHR) among hospitals and physicians.
With offerings that span records migration and management as well as financing and support, HP EHReady enables hospitals and their affiliated physicians to stay connected through an integrated EHR patient network designed to improve record security, efficiency and the quality of patient care.
The program offers a variety of solutions that include hardware, software and support along with installation, setup and training services—all designed to simplify system changes. The solutions can be customized for each medical practice and include a wide range of products from desktop PCs and workstations to notebook PCs, tablets and scanners.
EHReady includes flexible financing options designed to help organizations fund immediate investments on EHR technology while they secure government American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) subsidies, which may be available to qualifying applicants. The program also delivers information resources that can help medical offices better understand the overall ARRA-qualification policies.
EHReady also provides marketing services support to help hospitals promote the solution to their affiliated physician networks. These offerings include standard and customized marketing toolkits, as well as live engagement and one-on-one consulting with HP experts who can provide full-service marketing and program plan development.
