Could EMR add costs?

http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2012/03/05/could-electronic-medical-records-actually-add-costs/
Electronic streamlining of medical records has been touted as a way to save money, against the backdrop of a health care system that is characterized as wasteful. Electronic medical records (or “Health IT”) are supposed to save billions of dollars by eliminating duplicate or unnecessary testing.

But a new study is saying just the opposite: Health IT may actually add cost to health care instead of curbing it.

EMR penalties coming
The EMR incentive program so far has only affected physician practices that have been vying for bonus money, but that soon will change.

Starting in 2015, the Medicare program is scheduled to penalize doctors who haven’t adopted and used EMRs that meet or exceed stage 1 requirements. Payments for those physicians would be reduced by 1% in 2015, 2% in 2016 and 3% in 2017 and each subsequent year. To stop the 2015 pay adjustment from taking effect, a physician must achieve meaningful use objectives in the 2013 reporting year or by Oct. 1 of the 2014 reporting year.

CMS would create exemptions to the payment reduction for physicians who are practicing in areas without Internet access, newly practicing physicians or those who are subject to unforeseen circumstances, such as a natural disaster, the proposal states. Another exception would apply to physicians who demonstrate that they have a lack of control over the availability of EMR technology at their practice locations.
