Part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 will incentivize physician practices and hospitals to implement "meaningful use" of electronic health medical records technology. By some estimates, doctors can receive as much as US$44,000 each to implement qualifying electronic health record (EHR) systems. The government is expected to invest over $40 billion over the next few years in electronic health medical records technology. For more, see here.

With myiPractice, doctors can access all the data associated with their practice - including appointments, patient health medical records, accounting, billing, reports - anywhere on the planet via the Internet with a browser or a mobile device. Doctors can schedule, chart, invoice, oversee recall, manage insurance, check payments, send statements, get reports, and much more only with a browser and an Internet connection.
myiPractice offers a set of web-based applications hosted remotely in secure, high-performance facilities so doctors do no have to worry about the nuts and bolts of technology. Doctors can free themselves from worrying about setting up servers, updating software, backing up data, recovering from disasters. Instead, doctors can let engineers and IT professionals offsite worry about these issues. All doctors need to worry about is getting a basic computer or a mobile device and a reliable Internet connection.
This is the perfect time for medical offices big and small to move to adopt online-based Practice Management & Electronic Health Medical Records systems. The law actually mandates that medical offices move to implement "meaningful use" of electronic health medical records. As the Internet becomes more reliable and pervasive, and as the cost of computing devices continue to fall, more and more doctors will find that it not only makes practical sense, but also sound economics to adopt Internet-based solutions.
