Eligible hospitals report continued success within Promoting Interoperability Program

ATLANTA, GA – July 13, 2018 – Azalea 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.
