Health Care Providers Recognized as Leaders in Implementation of Electronic Health Records

Published: Jun 17, 2013

 

LEXINTON, Ky. (June 17, 2013) -- Kentucky health care providers and hospitals were recently recognized by the Kentucky Regional Extension Center (Kentucky REC) in conjunction with the Office of the National Coordinator at Health Information Technology (ONC) at six regional events across the state for their leadership in the nationwide transition toward electronic health records (EHR).

 

Kentucky REC, based at the University of Kentucky, is one of 60 regional extension centers across the country commissioned by the Office of the National Coordinator to help providers and hospitals transition to EHR technology.

 

Kentucky REC and Kentucky Health Information Exchange (KHIE) held the 2013 Meaningful Use Survival Seminar Series in Bardstown (March 15), Paducah (March 22), Hazard (April 12), Bowling Green (April 19), Somerset (May 10) and Lexington (May 31). These seminars provided informational sessions on hot topics in Health Information Technology such as Meaningful Use Stage 2, Privacy and Security, and Meaningful Use Audits.

 

These practices and hospitals are among an exclusive group of leaders – the Meaningful Use Vanguard (MUV).  MUV is an initiative of ONC, and is designed to honor, thank, and bring together clinicians who have successfully implemented electronic health records.  MUVers (members of the MUV program) serve as local leaders and advisors in the nation’s transition toward an electronically-enabled health care system.

 

“On behalf of the Kentucky REC, I would like to congratulate these practices and hospitals on this important distinction,” says Dr. Carol Steltenkamp, Chief Medical Information Officer for UK HealthCare and Director of the Kentucky REC. “Their experience is invaluable in helping clinicians take the necessary steps to transform from paper-based practices to electronically-enabled systems. We commend them for being at the forefront of EHR implementation, and hope their example will encourage others to follow in their footsteps.”

 

Kentucky REC implementation specialists provide resources and guidance to help providers gain federal incentives through the Meaningful Use Incentive Program. To date, the Kentucky REC is assisting more than 2,500 individual providers in more than 600 provider locations. Kentucky REC is also assisting more than a third of all Kentucky hospitals.

 

To date, the Kentucky REC has helped providers in Kentucky secure over $56 million in Meaningful Use incentive dollars. For more information about the Kentucky REC, visit www.kentuckyrec.com.  Follow @KentuckyREC on Twitter and connect with us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/EHRResource.
