Toccoa Clinic Receives Recognition for Electronic Medical Records

Toccoa Clinic recently earned an exceptional commendation from the Georgia Department of Community Health’s “Medicaid Electronic Health Records Incentive Program” for improving the quality, safety and efficiency of patient care.

The program is limited to eligible Medicaid health professionals for six years of participation in
adopting, implementing, upgrading or demonstrating meaningful use of certified electronic health records technology.

Specifically, the Clinic was cited for reporting patient volume according to guidelines, furnishing excellent evidence of program upgrades, above and beyond efforts to achieve meaningful use and exceptional understanding and adherence to program regulations.

This is the third year of the Clinic’s participation in the incentive program providing private-sector-based efficiency goals within the public realm of the Department of Community Health.

Toccoa Clinic Administrator David Cronic said the program has been a priority not only for the Department of Community Health, but to many medical practices across the state in order to improve efficiency through technology.
