MBA HealthGroup, the leading provider of electronic health record services in Vermont, announced today that Vermont Information Technology Leaders, Inc. (VITL), the non-profit health information exchange and Vermont’s only Regional Extension Center, has selected MBA HealthGroup as a VITL Preferred Partner.
VITL’s role in Vermont is to improve quality and efficiency of Vermont’s healthcare system through the use of health information technology, and the partnership between VITL and MBA HealthGroup will allow both organizations to collaborate in the interest of increasing the utilization of health information technology to improve patient care. MBA HealthGroup’s expertise in EHR implementation, training, support, and hosting as well as practice management and revenue cycle management will allow them to work with VITL to assist physicians in their transformation from a paper to an electronic world.
“We’re right here in Vermont. We’ve been working with Vermont physicians for twenty years, and spent the last five years helping them implement electronic health records. Now, with a connection to VITL, physicians can begin really using the data within their EHR, as well as the data that exists for any patient across Vermont,” said Ethan Bechtel, Director of Strategy for MBA HealthGroup. “We’re excited to be able to help physician practices achieve ‘Meaningful Use’, and begin sharing data statewide through VITL’s health information exchange. Our goal is and has always been to improve patient care wherever we can, so this is a great opportunity for us to use technology to achieve that goal.”
