WaveTwo Named Official Agent for North Texas Regional Extension Center

IRVING, TX--(Marketwire - August 19, 2010) -  WaveTwo, LLC and its Health IT 2015 division have been chosen by the North Texas Regional Extension Center (NTREC) to be an official agent to all Physicians in North Texas. As an official agent, WaveTwo will assist North Texas physicians in implementing electronic health records (EHR) and qualifying for incentive payments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

NTREC was recently awarded an $8.5 million grant from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to assist primary care providers, in a 41 county North Texas region, to adopt and achieve Meaningful Use of electronic health records (EHR). NTREC is the region's designated federal expert in Meaningful Use standards as promulgated by the Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). WaveTwo is now NTREC's official agent to these physicians.

WaveTwo services to physicians will include education, technical EHR assistance, guidance in meeting Meaningful Use criteria and obtaining CMS incentive payments. WaveTwo's goal is to assist 1,498 physicians in reaching Meaningful Use by April 2012. Physicians who do so will then qualify for incentive payments up to $44,000 per eligible professional.

"We are very proud to be chosen to perform this important work for Physicians and NTREC," said John Arnott Sr., Managing Partner for WaveTwo. "Our entire Health IT 2015 division's focus -- for the next two years -- will be to lead each of the applicants to 'meaningful use' and qualify for all of the incentive funds available to them."
