Are there any rehabilitation-specific electronic medical records that are currently certified under the Medicare program?
Certification of Health IT is intended to ensure that EHR technologies meet the adopted standards, certification criteria, and other technical requirements to achieve meaningful use of those records in systems. Eligible professionals, including doctors or medicine or osteopathy, doctors of dental surgery or dental medicine, doctors of podiatric medicine, doctors of optometry, and chiropractors, as well as eligible hospitals that seek to qualify for incentive payments under the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs are required by statute to use Certified EHR Technology. Although physical therapists are not considered EPs for the purposes of qualifying for incentive payments under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), awareness of the components of meaningful use is important as therapists evaluate the EMR marketplace.
It is important to recognize that certain core objectives of meaningful use fall outside of the scope of practice of the physical therapist. Therefore, certain required elements for EMR/EHR certification, including computerized provider order entry (CPOE), E-Prescribing, drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction checks would not be typical components of physical therapist specific EMR systems. Therefore, those systems specifically designed for physical therapy and other rehabilitation services, while best designed to assist the physical therapist in providing quality care consistent with the goals of meaningful use, would not currently qualify for EMR certification under the Medicare or Medicaid program.
