Trends Update — Electronic Medical Records: Ontario’s New EMR Adoption Program

floppy-disk1Ontario is providing up to $29,800 per physician over 3 years for new adopters of electronic medical records.  In the few weeks since the program has been implemented, the OMA has gotten over 650 inquiries and over 150 applicants.  There’s a local option and a cloud option, which runs off the eHealth Ontario servers.  Interestingly, up to $14,400 is available for early EMR adopters who complete upgrades to the latest spec.

Some interesting features at OntarioMD try to increase the effectiveness of the implementation:

  • EMR Advisor, an Ontario-based blog that includes information, tips and case studies;
  • A transition support program;
  • A support guide; and
  • Practice management consultants (on the government’s dime).

Meanwhile, Canada Health Infoway got its own clean bill of health from the Auditor General.
