Eligible Hospitals Report Continued Success within Promoting Interoperability Program


Health Innovations
, a leading provider of fully-integrated
cloud-based healthcare solutions and services, has seen continued
success within the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program, now
known as the Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program. In 2017, eligible
hospitals using Azalea Health received upwards of $250,000 in incentives
under the Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program. Azalea Health
Professional Services helped guide several eligible hospitals through
the attestation process to ensure maximum reimbursement was achieved.

"Attesting to the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program can sometimes be tricky
as every state has their own methodology. We struggled to attest due to
the challenges we faced with our state," explains Ruth Duhling, CEO at
Girard Medical Center. "With the help of Azalea Health's Professional
Services, not only were we able to successfully attest, but we were able
to claim Medicaid incentives we weren't sure we'd be able to otherwise
receive. Having the Professional Services Team guide us through the
process was invaluable."

Working collaboratively with practices and hospitals of all sizes and
specialties, Azalea Health offers a wide range of consulting and
professional services. The following professional service consulting
options are available to all Azalea Health customers:

  • Management and Oversight Services
  • Financial Management Consulting
  • Operational Review and Improvement
  • Coding and Compliance

  • QPP Participation Strategy and Compliance Support
  • Promoting Interoperability Support
  • IT Assessments and Security Risk Analysis
  • RHC Development and Planning
  • RHC Certification Assistance
  • RCH Policies and Procedures
  • Additional services as needed

"Eligible Professionals and Eligible Hospitals/CAHs who qualified for
the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, and started attesting in 2016 or
prior, have an opportunity to continue to receive incentives through
2021," shares Michelle Bowes, CMS Regulatory Program Team Lead
Consultant. "This is in addition to the incentives available through
successful participation in the Quality Payment Program (QPP)."

"Azalea Health is committed to helping customers navigate the changing
regulatory environment of healthcare, streamline operations, improve
workflow and maximize revenue," added Jeff Meaux, Senior Vice President
of Sales at Azalea Health. The dedicated Professional Services Team has
expertise in over 20 specialties, and remains up-to-date on regulatory
compliance, coding and reimbursement changes.
