West Coast Affiliate Offers Physician Consulting

IPRO’s San Francisco-based affiliate Lumetra Healthcare Solutions is now offering physicians a range of customized programs to help them utilize electronic health records (EHRs) in a way that meets government requirements while potentially qualifying them for incentive payments. Lumetra’s new product line builds on the success the organization has achieved in supporting physicians via Health Information Technology Support Services (HITSS).
Lumetra offers California-based clients three different packages and several add-on services. The most basic plan, HITSS Silver, aids providers who are pursuing “Meaningful Use”—the benchmark designation the federal government requires in order to fund implementation of EHRs. Attaining Meaningful Use means using the EHR in a way that improves the quality of healthcare for patients, involves them and their families in health decisions, and maintains the confidentiality of personal health information.
Lumetra’s Silver plan offers help desk assistance to providers needing evaluation and assessment of their Meaningful Use measures, troubleshooting with EHR vendors, facilitating provider registration with CMS, and ensuring successful attestation of Meaningful Use in order to receive incentive payments from CMS. The Gold and Platinum plans include these features, and offer more advanced assistance toward optimizing the EHR.
