CMIC Launches First EHR Malpractice Credit in Connecticut

GLASTONBURY, Conn. — CMIC, a doctor-owned medical-malpractice insurer serving Connecticut and Massachusetts, has announced the launch of the first malpractice premium credit available to Connecticut physicians for the use of electronic health records (EHR). Eligible physicians can receive a 5{06cf2b9696b159f874511d23dbc893eb1ac83014175ed30550cfff22781411e5} reduction in their premiums.

The new EHR credit will be available to physicians using an EHR program certified by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT), a private, nonprofit organization that has been recognized by the federal government as an official certification body for health-information technology.

In order to be eligible for the program, the practice must meet underwriting and claims approval and be willing to participate in CMIC-approved risk-management programs. The EHR must also have been fully operational for at least one year.

“A fully implemented EHR system reduces medical errors and increases efficiency and timeliness of care,” said Denise Funk, CEO of CMIC.  “It is appropriate that CMIC reward Connecticut practices that have successfully embraced and applied medical records technology certified by a nationally recognized organization.”

Practices interested in receiving more information about this new EHR credit should call CMIC at (860) 633-7788. More information on CCHIT and CCHIT Certified products is available at www.cchit.org and www.ehrdecisions.com.
