A GPO is an organization whose primary product/service is the development of purchasing contracts for their membership.
Members have access to significant savings that they would otherwise not be able to get were they not members of the purchasing organization. For example: Sam’s Club or Costco.

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act is to encourage the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) through incentive payments to physicians.
According to the Act, physicians are eligible to receive up to $44,000 in total incentives per physician from Medicare for “meaningful use” of a certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) starting in 2011. (Note: Physicians reimbursed by Medicaid can receive approximately $65,000 in prorated annual payments starting in 2011 based on state-defined guidelines.)
The HITECH Act is clearly an ideal opportunity for physicians who use Electronic Health Records – EHRs effectively to be rewarded and to stimulate adoption for those who aren’t currently using EHRs.
The incentive payments will be calculated using a formula similar to the Medicare incentive payments. The payments must be used to “adopt, implement, or upgrade certified EHR technology” during the first year of payment, unless the Medicaid Provider already has EHR. Providers, who already have EHR, as wellas those receiving payments after the first year, are only required to show meaningful use of the certified EHR technology. Medicaid will not reduce its payments if a hospital fails to implement EHR by a particular date, which differs from the Medicare incentive payment program.
IT Development – Government initiatives pushing electronic health records provides new opportunities in Healthcare. Electronic information management can help eliminate errors and many of the hours nurses spend charting patient data. By packaging our Hardware, Software and Services, we create a “value package” to address a customer’s unique concern. Selling a value package is essentially a new twist on solution selling. What is different is that the market is more ready than ever for these solutions.
