Xerox healthcare success hard to copy
A growing number of healthcare organizations are turning to Xerox Corporation for technology and consulting services in support of electronic health records (EHRs). In the past year alone, more than 50 clients hired Xerox to advise them on everything from securing meaningful-use funding to building health information exchanges (HIEs). Healthcare providers and states are also working with Xerox to comply with regulations put forth under the HITECH Act and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
On the electronic medical record (EMR) front, ACS, A Xerox Company, consults with hospitals like Botsford Hospital in Farmington Hills, Mich., and Cooper University Hospital (CUH) in Camden, N.J., on EMR solutions to get the most from meaningful-use stimulus funding. ACS is leading implementation strategies for McKesson's Paragon solution at Botsford and Epic's EMR clinical information system at CUH.
When it comes to HIEs, Wyoming is one of several states that ACS is helping to implement a Web-based EHR/HIE system. Working with the Wyoming Department of Health, ACS is helping to integrate the solution with the state's Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS), other EHR systems, designated laboratories and the state's immunization registry.
And as for state-level registries (SLRs), five states are currently working with ACS to establish SLRs, which allow providers that participate in Medicaid programs to apply for and receive meaningful-use federal funding via a secure Web site.
