Among the variety of quality improvement services that Qsource offers healthcare professionals is the successful transition from a paper to an electronic environment, including implementing electronic health records (EHRs), ePrescribing, and data abstraction and reporting. Our experience includes all these HIT services, as well as assistance with achieving meaningful use, PQRS reporting, and administering and conducting oversight of incentive programs for ePrescribing.
Qsource currently helps physicians in Arkansas establish an ePrescribing system and, as the Regional Extension Center (REC) for Tennessee, we are facilitating health information exchanges and promoting electronic health records.
We can offer an in-depth analysis of a provider or practice to determine its needs, workflow processes and software that would best suit individual EHR requirements through tnREC. Providers and practitioners in Tennessee can apply for REC assistance online, and may elect to participate in QIO programs to receive assistance with quality measure reporting and care management using an EHR.
Through the tnREC division, Qsource is working with providers to familiarize them with the Health eShare Direct Project. The technology is a secure email-like service that will be the infrastructure that facilitates health information exchange (HIE) in Tennessee. It allows providers a simple, secure way to communicate protected health information to other providers who also own a Direct address.
