Chicago-based Allscripts announced that The Jackson Clinic, located in Jackson, Tenn., has selected the Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) for its 120 physicians and 10 mid-level providers who serve patients throughout West Tennessee.
The Jackson Clinic will integrate the EHR with its Allscripts Vision Practice Management solution to provide full-spectrum automation of all clinical and financial activities.
By upgrading to the Allscripts EHR, The Jackson Clinic expects to qualify for more than $4 million of federal stimulus funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Beginning next year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will pay physicians up to $44,000 for implementing a certified Electronic Health Record and utilizing it in a “meaningful” way.
