Dr. Aaron Hartle of Pace Clinic, a client of Waiting Room Solutions, Is Happy To Announce He is the First Applicant, First Nurse Practitioner, and First overall to Receive Meaningful Use Stimulus Check in Utah!

Waiting Room Solutions (WRS), a leading provider of web based electronic health record (EHR) and Practice Management software, announces that the users of their web based EHR are beginning to receive their initial stimulus payments.  So far, Waiting Room Solutions clients have received over $1M in stimulus incentives.

Dr. Aaron Hartle of Pace Clinic, located in SpringfieldUtah, excitedly informed Waiting Room Solutions that he has received his promised EHR stimulus check.  Dr. Hartle was the first applicant, the first nurse practitioner, and the first overall to receive a check from Utah Medicaid.  

Waiting Room Solutions (WRS), a leading provider of web based Electronic Health Record and Practice Management Software, announced that users of their web based EMR solution are beginning to receive their initial stimulus payments by demonstrating Meaningful Use as part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) State 1 Electronic Health Record Meaningful Use Medicare Incentive Program.

On April 6, 2010, Waiting Room Solutions announced that Pace Clinic chose WRS’ Urgent Care EHR and Practice Management System for its urgent care center.  Since that time, Dr. Hartle has been more than impressed with Waiting Room Solutions web based Electronic Health Record solution.  “I use Waiting Room Solutions to save money, rather than paying my outsourced billing company. The integrated system allows me to reduce unnecessary staff and streamline workflow” said Hartle.

According to the 2009 HITECH Act, physicians are eligible to receive up to $44,000 in total incentives, per physician, from Medicare for “Meaningful Use” of a certified Electronic Health Record starting in 2011.  Physicians reimbursed by Medicaid can receive up to $63,750 starting in 2011 based on state-defined guidelines.  CMS released their rules for Stage 1 Meaningful Use requirements that physicians need to meet in July of 2010. 

Dr. Lawrence Gordon, CEO of Waiting Room Solutions, stated, “Dr. Hartle and his urgent care practice have set a wonderful example for their community.  We are very proud to have been part of their success.”

 About Pace Clinic

Pace Clinic, a walk-in urgent care clinic, provides patients with prompt medical care for minor injuries and illness such as cuts, sprains, colds, and flu. The clinic is located inside Art City Pharmacy, which is convenient for prescription pick-up after urgent care medical treatment. Previously, Pace Clinic used another urgent care EHR system to handle its charting needs and outsourced its urgent care billing functions to a third party company. Meanwhile, it had been looking to switch to a more efficient and convenient urgent care EHR system that could provide more capabilities such as urgent care e-prescribing, urgent care charting, and urgent care medical billing management. After evaluating many potential Urgent Care Electronic Health Record and Practice Management systems, Pace Clinic decided to select Waiting Room Solutions’ web-based Urgent Care EHR and Urgent Care Practice Management System.  In addition to the multiple modules necessary to run the Pace Clinic, the system provides real-time HIPAA-compliant connections for local and national pharmacies, labs, physicians, hospitals, insurers and patients. In addition, Waiting Room Solutions' web-based Urgent Care EHR solutions offer Pace Clinic more user–friendly urgent care EHR interface, urgent care patient appointment scheduling, and urgent care billing management. Waiting Room Solutions’ secure, HIPAA-compliant, encrypted technology will also ensure confidentiality of the web-based urgent care electronic health records.
