I always love creativity and so I have to give credit to the marketing people at meridianEMR. They’re providing an interesting price reduction in their EMR that keys off of many physicians anger over the potential 21.9% Medicare reimbursement cuts. Here’s a few portions from the meridianEMR offer:
In order to provide physicians with relief from Medicare fix uncertainty, meridianEMR is offering a special “meridianEMR Doc Fix.” This includes a 21.9% reduction on all new meridianEMR system orders for new Urology customers starting November 10, 2010 and ending December 31, 2010. This unprecedented offer during these uncertain times directly reflects one of the core values of meridianEMR, which is partnership with clients.
“If the government does not rescind the “Doc Fix” of 21.9%, our offer still stands. We encourage our potential new clients to move forward with confidence that they will be receiving the market leading Urology EHR at the most affordable price ever offered by meridianEMR. This is our way of standing by their side in a challenging economic environment,” commented Lawrence Drappi, Executive Vice President, meridianEMR.
I’m sure that many doctors will appreciate the gesture. Pretty creative to key off of cuts that have been seen as such a negative thing. I wonder if other EMR vendors will follow their lead. Many of the EHR software out there could use at least a 21.9% cost reduction.
