Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT)
Integration of electronic health records improves oversight and optimizes reimbursements
PLEXIS’ clinical, financial, and administrative payer platform can seamlessly integrate certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) to create a wealth of benefits for payers, providers, and patients. CEHRT encompasses qualified electronic medical records (EMRs), sometimes called electronic health records (EHRs). CEHRT is critical for coordinating care and measuring outcomes so that payers can contain costs and enhance quality of care. Beginning in 2017, payers with Medicare lines of business can avoid penalties and optimize reimbursements by implementing CEHRT.
