HBMA Establishes New Electronic Medical Record Task Force
The rapid expansion of electronic medical records (EMR) technology is on the horizon. The leadership of HBMA is taking a proactive position and has established an Electronic Medical Record Task Force in order to help HBMA members understand the impact of this technology and how it will affect the billing industry.
Over the next year it will be critical for HBMA members to understand the challenges and opportunities that exist with the expansion of electronic medical records, especially for the office-based practice. Pressures have and will come from hospital systems, payers, and certain specialties seeking to strengthen their relationships with physician practices by subsidizing the upfront investment in EMR. EMR providers themselves who offer integrated practice management solutions also threaten billing companies’ existing relationships with the appeal that physicians can better manage billing internally using the provider’s integrated system.
