MedcomSoft, eQHIP enter EMR Alliance
MedcomSoft has entered into a formal letter of agreement and strategic alliance with eQuality Healthcare Information for Physicians (eQHIP), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Hawaii Independent Physician's Association, for the purpose of deploying MedcomSoft’s EMR, MedcomSoft Record, throughout Hawaii.

The Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) is providing $20 million in grants for physicians to install EMR technologies in their practices, which will enable 1,000 Hawaii physicians to be eligible to receive up to $20,000 towards a new EMR system, eQHIP said.

Under the agreement, eQHIP and MedcomSoft will make a joint proposal for the purpose of accessing these HMSA subsidies. Additionally, MedcomSoft has agreed to supply eQHIP with up to 250 MedcomSoft Record licenses over the next 18 months and will also provide the implementation, training and support services to its members, according to MedcomSoft.
