March 2010 - PAeHI - Pennsylvania e-Health Initiative

As a member of PAeHI ATIBA looks forward to working with other organizations throughout the state to promote EHR technology and the secure exchange of health information in a manner that ultimately enhances communication and collaboration between patients, hospitals, physicians and healthcare organizations.

ATIBA is committed to facilitating the implementation of EHR systems by educating physicians and healthcare practices about the benefits of EHR, government incentives that are available to eligible professionals, assisting in the vendor selection process, managing the implementation, assisting in the process of proving 'meaningful use', providing guidance in the development of data security and privacy policies and procedures, and conducting periodic risk assessments to mitigate the risk of data breaches and penalties related to non-compliance of HIPAA regulations.

ATIBA representatives will be attending the next PAeHI meeting in Harrisburg in mid-April, and will be attending the PHIMA/PAeHI Annual Meeting in Hershey, PA May 10th -12th. For more information about these organizations go to:

March 2010 - Thank you to those who attended our seminar

HEALTHCARE TRANSFORMATION - CONVERTING TO ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS

imageSponsored by: ATIBA Technology Solutions, Site2 and The Great Valley Technology Alliance

Keynote Speaker: Anita Rose, ATIBA Technology Solutions

ATIBA Technology Solutions and Site2 would like to thank all who attended the Healthcare Transformation – Converting to (EHR) Electronic Health Records seminars we hosted in Scranton on February 17th. Special thanks to Chris Haran of the Great Valley Technology Alliance for sponsoring the seminar and providing an introduction during our afternoon session.

Our goal was to educate physicians and local healthcare practices regarding the benefits of converting to EHR, government incentives of up to $44,000 and $64,000 that are available to ‘eligible professionals’ who implement EHR and prove ‘meaningful use’ of a certified EHR system, what is involved from an IT and business analysis standpoint and how ATIBA and Site2 could support their efforts moving forward. Based on the glowing feedback received from surveys provided by attendees our efforts were successful and the seminar provided great value to those who attended.

As with all government programs, there is a timeline associated to incentive payments as well as criteria that must be met – to receive the full incentive bonus available action must take place soon. Selecting, implementing, using and proving meaningful use of a certified EHR product will take most practices between 6-18 months, so it is important that those who wish to take advantage of the government incentives begin the process.

Thanks again to all who made our first EHR seminar a success!

November 17, 2010 - MetroAction 2nd Annual Go Green Business Summit

Guest Speaker: Anita Rose, ATIBA Technology Solutions


imageMetroAction of Northeast PA is sponsoring the second annual Go Green Business Summit from 9 am to 2 pm on November 17th, 2009 at Marywood University, 2300 Adams Avenue, Scranton, PA. The theme of this year’s Summit its “Putting the ECO in the ECOnomy”.

Anita Rose, President of ATIBA Technology Solutions, a local business and I.T. consulting company that has recently developed a ‘going green’ consulting practice, will be one of the presenters. Her presentation will educate participants on ‘Green Office and Green I.T.’ business practices.

Going Green is fast becoming a necessity – most businesses have not yet grasped the magnitude and speed of the ‘green wave’ that is about to hit. Whether or not Congress passes what is known as the “Waxman-Markley Cap and Trade” bill, other energy bills that mandate the reduction of greenhouse gasses and force energy conservation and clean energy technologies will be passed and will have a direct impact on the cost of doing business and overall business sustainability.

Businesses today no longer ask “Why should we go green?” but “How do we go green, how fast can we go green and what are the business risks if we don’t go green?” Businesses that previously put green initiatives on a back burner are now motivated to assess their energy consumption and the impact their business operations have on the environment and take proactive steps to reduce their carbon footprint.

In answer to that need, ATIBA has developed a ‘Green Zone’ framework that will help transform organizations to think green and work green – the benefits of which will be decreased energy consumption and a decreased cost of doing business.
