Sarasota, FL. Empower Technologies, Inc. D/B/A/ SonoSoft® announced today that it has completed production of an in formational video discussing the requirements of the HITECH Act as they relate to medical professionals and medical related health record keeping.
On February 17, 2009 President Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Of the $787 billion invested, a large portion ($19.2 Billion) of the ARRA is allocated to improve Heal th Information Technology. This portion of the Act is known as the HITECH Act. The HITECH Act offers financial incentives to physicians who purchase, implement, and meaningful l y use an Electronic Health Record (EHR) by the year 2015.
“In order to improve the quality and lower the cost of healthcare, physicians must become educated in healthcare information technology (-HIT), ” said Dr. John Stagl , SonoSoft’s President. “Unfortunately, HIT is extremely complex so we set out to produce one video, -a half-hour in length; that provided a comprehensive set of information for practicing physicians, medical office administrators and medical CIOs”.
