Mandatory Disclousure Statement:
For public release and exact language used for our website and marketing distributions:
The undersigned herewith confirms that ifa united i-tech, vendor of EHR V7, does provide easy to read and easy to understand price transparency to the users represented by:
- Document of Understanding (individual and modified)
- License agreement
- Quotation (individual depending on number of users and instrument interfaces)
This certified product version may require additional costs, contractual obligations and may have technical and practical limitations.
Stimulus additions support for this certified product-version may require additional one-time costs as well as additional annual on-going costs. Stimulus additions include patient portal, secure messaging and eRx module. Also if the user wishes to participate in any type of registry they can license an interface called the clinical registry export module (CREM) to anonymize the patient data as well as export it into XML for registry use. There is a one-time cost to set up this interface as well as an annual fee.
Providers are required to sign a contract when purchasing our product. They will have the option to “lease” it but will be contractually obligated for at least one year.
The technical limitations are that the provider must purchase additional services in order to comply with meaningful use. The must have a website for the patients to access the portal from, or the portal vendor will create a generic one for them. The portal is also how the patients will be able to send the doctor secure electronic messages. These services we outline in the quotation and refer to as “Stimulus additions”. The user will be charged a one-time set up fee, and also an annual runtime fee in addition to the standard annual runtime fee for the software. We serve as the source which interfaces with these third party vendors and also support our users as a first line resource.
The vendor provides a structured guideline and support for the customization process. The licensee receives a “welcome package” which is integral part of the financial agreement.
In case of changes of the price transparency language the vendor will notify The Drummond Group.
