Product Description


Electronic medical recording keeping is no longer just an option. Find out how the new Stimulus Package is going to change your practice — and how you can come out a winner.

Heads-up healthcare professionals: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) is here. $180 billion in federal funding has been set aside for healthcare-related spending. Part of this spending package will drive 90% of physicians to adopt certified electronic health records within the next 10 years. This not only impacts workflow, but could transform the roles of coders and billers. Join expert Sheri Poe Bernard, CPC, CPC-H, CPC-P for this one-hour look at how you can optimize the benefits of ARRA in your practice. Sheri will give you guidance on EMR adoption and tips on how to make the most of these changes for your practice and your career.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Don't take a stab in the dark – Assemble the right team to select the EMR that is right for your practice.
  • Enhance charge capture by repurposing personnel — here's what you need to know first.
  • EMRs will rewrite the blueprint for workflow in the physician office: Here's how to survive the transition.
