About Our Practice Support Services

Meaningful Use & Physician Quality Report System (PQRS)

Our team can help integrate certified electronic health records (EHR) into your practice for the safety and quality of keeping patient records. We offer this service at no charge to your practice, and qualifying for meaningful use often helps practices achieve state and federal incentives.
