Executives at Sage, provider of the Sage Intergy EHR integrated, interoperable electronic health records system and practice management systems for care providers and federally qualified health centers, today joined with forward-looking physicians and other ambulatory practice leaders in applauding the signing of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), which devotes more than $19 billion to bring our country's healthcare record infrastructure into the 21st century.

"ARRA is a great leap forward in encouraging physician adoption of electronic health records to help improve healthcare quality and efficiency in the United States," said Lindy Benton, Chief Operating Officer, Sage. "We commend our country's leaders in taking this bold step."

Across the nation, healthcare professionals expressed similar thoughts on the effect ARRA will have.

Guillermo Diaz, MD, Assistant Chief Medical Officer of QueensCare Family Clinics, a large federally qualified health center serving the residents of Los Angeles, said, "Our adoption of electronic health records has helped us gain a deeper understanding of the quality of care we provide to our patients. As more doctors adopt electronic health records through the incentives provided by ARRA, I predict we'll see a corresponding rise in healthcare quality nationwide."

The healthcare industry might not yet realize this simple fact: Although this does not garner much in the way of media attention, ICD-10 promises to improve the business of healthcare in numerous ways.

Despite the cost, expanse, and overwhelming transformation payers and providers will have to undertake to achieve ICD-10 compliance, ultimately it will be a boon for both healthcare in America and those organizations that serve up that care.

In a white paper, Joseph Nichols, MD, principal at Health Data Consulting, highlights myriad ways that healthcare organizations can leverage ICD-10 to improve their business. Here they are:
 
1. More appropriate contracting
2. More precise payment
3. Better definition of severity, risk, and case mix
4. Improved measurement of quality, efficiency, and outcomes
5. Better network management
6. Better fraud and abuse detection
7. Better risk prediction
8. Competitive advantage
9. Compliance

Health Tips

Exercising When Obese

If you are obese, then check with your physician before initiating any exercise program. Our suggestion, search for a low impact aerobic program as a starter.

Fat Free vs. Calorie Free

Just because a product is fat free, doesn't mean it is calorie free. In fact, fat free or reduced fat products can have as many, if not more, calories per serving than regular products. So, yes, you do need to watch your fat intake. But remember that calories count, too.
