EMR has reached the point of retail commodity. Costco’s online website is offering the Allscripts My Way and PHR for $499 / month. It was not clear if this was a ‘cloud’ solution, although it did state it was a ‘hosted’ EMR.
Costco has teamed up with Etransmedia, a Premier Plus Allscripts Partner, allowing them to offer this EHR and PM solution to Costco members.
My Way is the product of the purchase of Misys, a former competitor of Allscript, and is not truly the Allscripts EMR.
The COSTCO web site elaborates further on federal incentives of $44,000 dollars for adopting EMR.
The advertisement appears on a ‘redirect’ to Etransmedia’s website, not an uncommon practice for Costco Online offers.
No mention is made of whether the offer applies to in store purchase.
