Meaningful Use and EHR Incentives


The EHR Incentive Program is well underway and many oral health providers are eligible to receive funding. However, there is a lot of confusion in the market about who qualifies, what criteria has to be met, and how to meet the meaningful use standard.

As we travel further along the path of  meaningful use and federal electronic records mandates, including “team” based healthcare (PCMH) and accountable care organizations (ACO), the landscape is constantly changing and dental specific EHRs will begin to take their place at the Meaningful Use certification table.

Our goal at DentalSoftwareAdvisor.com is to hep you and your oral health practice navigate the confusing maze that is the EHR Incentive Program to secure the Federal Meaningful Use Subsidies you deserve!

Price Negotiations

pricenegOver years of experience we have encountered many clients who thought that they received the best deal from the vendor but in reality could have done better. This takes an understanding of market pricing models as well as giving the vendor a reason to give you the best price. Price negotiations should be a win-win with the vendor. We have engaged dozens of vendors over the years and developed an understanding of what it takes to get our clients the best prices for products and services.

    • Assure quotes are complete and there are no “surprises”
    • Put vendor quotations in common format for easier comparison
    • Use knowledge of market best pricing
    • Negotiate the best price for products and services

Contract Negotiations

contractnegA vendor once commented that, in most cases, once an organization made the decision to purchase, very rarely did they aggressively question or negotiate the contracts and agreements involved. The contracts and agreements you sign now will follow you and your vendor into the future and define your rights should things not go as planned.

Software contracts are a specialized area and it takes years of experience to understand how these should be structured. We put those years of experience into protecting our clients now and into the future.
