NYC PCIP $500 Specialist Referral credit

Refer a Colleague to PCIP
Earn $500 in eClinicalWorks Credit

Dear PCIP Partner,

Your decision to “go paperless” with support from the Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) has surely transformed the way your practice delivers patient care, and we would like to thank you for your partnership.

As we embark on the next phase of our project, we now need your assistance. PCIP was recently awarded a grant from New York State that will allow us to develop an electronic tool for tracking referrals and consultations, an innovation that will significantly enhance the ability of primary care providers to coordinate patient care. The funding will also allow us to develop a hospital discharge summary tool that will provide physicians with a patient’s medication list and information about which lab and radiology tests were performed on admission. Additionally, it will help close the loop” when patients are sent elsewhere for specialist or emergency care. These improvements will help avoid adverse patient drug interactions and will make information-gathering more accurate and less burdensome for both you and your patients.

For this program to be successful, we need as many specialists as possible to participate. Please help us promote electronic referrals in your community. All you have to do is complete the referral form and submit the names of specialists to whom you frequently refer patients. Ideally, the specialists you list should treat a high volume of Diabetic patients (Endocrinologists, Podiatrists, Ophthalmologists, Nephrologists, and Cardiologists, though other specialists may also qualify), and should be interested in implementing a subsidized EHR system through PCIP. If a provider you refer ends up enrolling in PCIP, you will receive a $500 eClinicalWorks account credit!

In order for specialists and other prospective providers to learn more about EHR implementation through PCIP, we are hosting free Open Houses on December 17th and January 11th. For more details about the Open Houses, please view the flyer (PDF). Help us spread the word!

To qualify for a $500 eClinicalWorks credit, submit the referral form via e-mail as soon as possible. Send the form to and with the names of the providers you are referring.

We thank you in advance for your assistance, and we applaud you- our early EHR adopters- for being at the leading edge of EHR implementation nationwide.

Best Regards,

Reena Samantaray
Director of Outreach and Consulting Services

Walmart to sell eCW Electronic Health Records (EHR)

According to the NY Times, soon you'll be able to go to a local Sam's Club and purchase a package that includes eClinicalWorks and Dell computers for about $25,000.00 for the first doctor.
Annual support would be between $4000.00 and $6000.00.

I guess the Stimulus Package and a positive experience with the software in the Redi-Clinics has gotten Walmart to look at EHR distribution as a new product/service with a lot of potential.

I look forward to see if Walmart will now start promoting the DOSSIA PHR as well.

How many of you expect this announcement before year's end:

Rediclinic + Walmart medical customers + DOSSIA + eEHX = Community Health Information Exchange (HIE)?

What do you think? SV
