The Columbus-based Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA) is launching a program to assist physicians with the EMR decision-making process.
The Standards of Excellence Program, which is available exclusively to OSMA members, will identify vendors that have agreed to include “physician-friendly” terms in their contracts and are providing OSMA members with preferred pricing, according to the organization.
In order to be recognized as a participant in OSMA’s program, vendors must agree to meet the Standards of Excellence criteria and must be certified by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT).

OSMA worked in conjunction with The Coker Group, a healthcare consulting firm based in Atlanta, to identify terms and conditions that would help protect physicians’ rights in the EMR contracting process.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
