Health Information Technology (HIT)

Health Information Technology (HIT), such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), have the potential to improve patient quality of care. The goal of the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) is to help ensure HIT has a positive impact on physicians, patients, and practices by enhancing quality of care, patient safety, and practice viability. 

MSMS works with its members to understand the importance of health information technologies and how to meet federal and state programs. MSMS works with stakeholders across Michigan to ensure the physician perspective is a part of the ongoing growth and expansion in HIT initiatives impacting a practice. 

Additionally, MSMS consultation services are available to:

  1. Educate you and your staff on how to qualify for the Medicare or Medicare EHR Incentive Program ("Meaningful Use") criteria.
  2. Assist with selection of the program (Medicaid or Medicare), Menu Set and Clinical Quality Measures.
  3. Assist with Registration and Attestation for the chosen program.
