CHICAGO, Oct. 31, 2012
CHICAGO, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Intermountain Healthcare, a nonprofit
health system serving the healthcare needs of Utah and southeastern Idaho
residents, has selected SA Ignite's MU Assistant^® to automate their "last
mile" of achieving Meaningful Use (MU) and attest for Medicare's Stage 1
incentive payment. MU Assistant has been dubbed the "TurboTax^® for Meaningful
Use reporting" for its ability to automate MU reporting and enable one-click
electronic attestation to CMS.
"We are looking to MU Assistant to help us support our clinicians with the
attestation process for meaningful use," said Mark Briesacher, MD, Senior
Administrative Medical Director, Intermountain Medical Group. "SA Ignite
offers a good solution for a medical group of our size and will help us save
time for both our clinicians and our staff that support them."
Intermountain will utilize MU Assistant's electronic filing tools in
conjunction with its own proprietary Electronic Health Records (EHR) software,
for more than 450 of its physicians. MU Assistant electronically files
providers' data to government attestation web sites, providing a one-click
attestation process and automatically electronically archiving supporting data
for impending audits.
"We are thrilled to be working with a national leader in both healthcare
delivery and healthcare IT," explained Tom S. Lee, PhD, CEO and founder of SA
Ignite. "Our ability to work seamlessly with Intermountain's homegrown EHR
system is yet another example of the flexibility of MU Assistant to connect
efficiently and deliver one-click attestation. Our ability to relieve their
significant administrative burden is crucial as they can then focus their
resources on their ground-breaking quality initiatives."
