(Electronic Health Records). EHRs are digital records kept by your doctor's office, the facilities where you are a patient or your insurance company. This technology allows for easy tracking of a patient's entire health and medical history in a computerized, electronic format. The information is now more easily retrievable.
(Electronic Medical Records) same as EHR (Electronic Health Records)
E-prescriptions are prescriptions generated on a computer created by the healthcare provider and then sent through the computer directly to your pharmacy. Instead of writing the prescription, the healthcare provider can enter it into the computer. This transmission should be sent through a secure and private network and not over an open Internet as an email. Printing capabilities are still available and not lost with this feature.
(The Department of Health and Human Services). A U.S. Governmental body for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves.
(Health Information Technology). (HIT) Relates to information technology being used to disseminate and manage health information from patients to providers and insurers across computerized systems. HIT can help prevent medical errors, decrease paperwork, reduce health care expenses and improve the quality of health care.
(International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification). ICD-10-CM was developed as a replacement for Volume 3 of ICD-9-CM codes. They represent a uniform, international classification system of describing diagnoses (for example: coding for diseases, abnormal findings, symptoms and injury diagnoses). This coding system is used worldwide for statistics and insurance reimbursement which enables other medical professional in the United States and several other parts of the world to understand the diagnosis the same way. ICD-10 coding accommodates a host of new diagnoses and procedures with more than 141,000 new codes.

Medical billers and coders who use these codes to report health care diagnoses and procedures will have to use the replacement of the ICD-9-CM codes with the ICD-10 code set which has been mandated by The Department of Health and Human Services, effective Oct. 1, 2014 changing from the original implementation date of October 1, 2013. Medical billers should begin to get training to be well-positioned for the coding switch.

  Meaningful Use
Meaningful use describe objectives and rules to be met during the implementation of electronic health records (EHRs). The rules include concepts such as ensuring privacy and security of patients' records, improving patient care coordination, and making sure patients have access to those digital records.

Meaningful Use reimbursement payments

Reimbursement payments are based on the amount of Medicare-covered professional services rendered during the year in question. To determine how much will be reimbursed, payments are calculated by multiplying the submitted allowable charges to Medicare by 75%, up to the capped amount for the year. For example, to collect the full incentive payment of $18,000, you will need to submit at least $24,000 in allowable Medicare charges. Eligible physicians who were compliant in 2011 or 2012 received and will receive the full benefit of the maximum payment of $44,000 expected to be paid through Medicare participation. After 2013, the payment amount decreases for subsequent years with no payments being made after 2016.

(The National Correct Coding Initiative). NCCI helps to reduce improper coding which can resulting in improper payment of Medicare Part B claims and Medicaid claims. This initiative also promotes national correct coding methodologies.
