MedLink Adding Additional Quality Measure Reporting Services

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 14, 2010) - MedLink (OTCBB: MLKNA) announced today that its MedLink TotalOffice EHR automates and streamlines the data and reporting processes for the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI). The MedLink EHR has been designated as a "Qualified EHR" by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for direct Electronic Health Record reporting of PQRI submission, and MedLink continues to work with state and city municipalities to add additional reporting services with some of those services being unique to MedLink EHR users. Physicians can qualify for various incentive programs on the federal, state and local level by implementing a qualified Electronic Health Record (EHR) application which has resulted in increased awareness of MedLink products as well as demand.

The Agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services on January 13, 2010 officially published two rules covering the meaningful use of electronic health records provisions of the HITECH Act within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. And, as expected, PQRI is a prerequisite for physicians to demonstrate 'meaningful use' of an EHR in order to receive the Medicare incentive payment.

Ray Vuono, President of MedLink, states, "With the economic stimulus package allotting more than $17 billion to reward Medicare and Medicaid providers who can prove they are using certified EHR 'in a meaningful way,' it is crucial for an EHR to provide seamless reporting capabilities to help providers maximize the incentive available to them. As a 'Qualified' EHR for the direct reporting of PQRI to CMS, and with Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) subsidies of 85% available to assist practices in the purchase of the MedLink TotalOffice EHR -- the MedLink EHR provides physicians not only with the tools to improve patient care and maximize practice revenue but with an almost immediate return on investment."
