Ingenix is offering a package that includes interest-free financing, HIT services and performance guarantees. The program enables physicians to implement Ingenix CareTracker EHR with no out-of-pocket costs and no payments until 2011 when HITECH reimbursements begin.
Qualifying U.S. physicians can receive an interest-free loan from Ingenix (underwritten by OptumHealth Bank) to license and implement CareTracker EHR. The financing covers implementation and monthly subscription costs until Nov. 30, 2015. Qualifying physicians can repay the loans with annual reimbursement dollars from the incentives.
In addition to the interest-free financing, Ingenix guarantees that CareTracker EHR will support “meaningful use” requirements physicians must meet.
According to Ingenix, the combined annual subscription cost for CareTracker EHR and CareTracker PM is less than $7,000 per doc.
