Electronic Health Records

Optimizing Your Patients’ Experience, Enhancing Your Bottom Line
Have you made the move to Electronic Health Records (EHR) yet?

D’Souza & Associates can enable your practice to take advantage of clinical connectivity at a reduced cost. We are committed to helping practices transition from paper-based workflows to more efficient business models. Our EHR is CCHIT Certified electronic health records (EHR) software that moves your practice to electronic health records without disrupting the way you function. Designed to complement the work style and clinical approach of every physician in your practice, to think and move the way you do. For the first round of Medicare and Medicaid EMR bonuses in 2011-12, physicians must meet 15 core objectives and at least five of 10 “menu set” items. Each objective has a measure to determine if an EMR was used to perform the function for an appropriate number of opportunities. Any product we use will meet all the core and menu set requirements for government bonuses and mandates.
