The effort to bring IT technology to the medical profession got another boost from CSC, one of the largest independent computer services firms, with the creation of an online service design to assist medical providers navigate regulations. IT Channel Planet notes that with billions of dollars available for a host of new government incentives, that means a lot of work for CSC and medical providers alike.
Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC), a $16 billion provider of IT and managed services to businesses and the public sector headquartered in Falls Church, VA, said it has launched an interactive, online community whose main focus is to provide a forum for health care professionals to share information on meaningful use of electronic health record (EHR) technology.
CSC officials said that the online forum, called the CSC Meaningful Use Community, is collaborative in nature, intended to provide useful information and best practices from health care providers who have successfully implemented the EHR technology and met the federal government's meaningful use standards.
