Last week the Office of National Coordinator for Health IT, part of the Department of Health and Human Services requested ideas to accelerate electronic health record exchange between providers, due to challenges with health information exchanges (HIEs).
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), with backing from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have announced the development of a new software that can help better Electronic Health Records (EHRs) for the care of children.

Under the HITECH Act – a provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act – physicians who implement EHRs and meet HHS meaningful use criteria may be eligible for HITECH incentives of $44,000 or more.
The Recovery Act specifies the following three components of meaningful use:
1. Use a certified EHR in a meaningful manner such as e-prescribing.
2. Use certified EHR technology for electronic exchange of health information to improve quality of healthcare.
3. Use certified EHR technology to submit clinical quality measures.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for introducing us to NCG Medical and the Perfect Care
EMR system. It has been an answer we were looking for. The new system was easy to install without
having to retrain the staff on a new system. Your staff has been a pleasure to work with. Laura has
been amazing with the implementation right up to the point of attestation for the incentive check,
which, by the way, we received. As promised, we received $18,000 per doctor for five providers within
Our office has been with NCG Medical for a decade now, and our experience has always been positive. When we decided to switch over to Perfect Care EHR everyone was very helpful in the process. At the end of the year we did receive our $18,000 incentive check. It went very smooth and easy!
Our practice is a multi-specialty clinic with family medicine, chiropractic, and podiatry specialties. Perfect Care has been a perfect match for all our doctors. The successful attestation of our five doctors with Perfect Care EHR was the icing on the cake!
I have been working with NCG Medical for several years. Perfect Care EHR is the only way to maintain continued productivity, excellent service, and a medical practice that will run smoothly no matter what requirements or mandates face the health care industry. As practice manager, it is my responsibility to make sure the business runs smooth. I want to thank the staff at NCG Medical for guiding me through these last several years. Perfect Care EHR is an asset to any practice.
We have met "meaningful use" easily, NCG and Perfect Care EHR support team guided us through the attestment and we are awaiting our "incentive" checks three months after installation. It's a wonderful team to work with!
The NCG Medical service that we receive is excellent and the personnel we work with are fantastic. All my questions are answered quickly and followed up with additional resources to ensure that my practice is successful…true picture of great customer service.
As an administrator of a busy general surgery practice it was my responsibility to find the very best EHR system. I looked at more than eight EHR systems and NCG Medical’s Perfect Care EHR fit all of our needs. We are so happy with our decision.
Our Perfect Care program was easy to learn and use! NCG's knowledgeable staff took what could have easily been the most nightmarish ordeal and helped us transition seamlessly into an EHR system that works for us, without affecting our office productivity, resulting in an $18,000 incentive. Thanks NCG!
Our experience with NCG Medical and Perfect Care exceeded my expectations. As we were trying to beat the deadline to receive the incentive, NCG took over and handled everything quickly and professionally. They were able to accomplish all of what was required and had my office trained and working in plenty of time – all with no loss of productivity or change in any workflow.
My office has been using Perfect Care EHR for five months. I’m a solo doctor and see on average 50 patients a day. With Perfect Care EHR I never saw a loss in productivity and I have already received $18,000 in incentives.
I have been a user of Perfect Care EHR for about seven months. I’m totally satisfied with the system operation and the outstanding service. As promised, I received the $18,000.00 incentive in December of 2011, without any problem. I have used another vendor in the past and never received the quality of service as I do now. I can't imagine why anyone would use another vendor. I fully endorse the Perfect Care program and its staff.
