Grant programs basics

 

Grant programs exist and allow general physicians to receive a payback to cover a part of their expenses for their Electronic Medical Record (EMR) license. They were created to make EMR more accessible. In fact, many studies have concluded that computerizing physician's practice ensures a better quality of care for patients and makes their everyday work more efficient. Almost the entire EMR license cost is covered by those programs. Here are the two main existing programs and references to learn more about them.

REFUND | LICENCES

General physicians

This grant program is really simple to join and allows physicians to receive a refund on an EMR license with specific billing codes created for this purpose. No matter if you work in an FMG, a non-FMG, or if you're involved in a super clinics' walk-in, you can receive more than 450$ each quarter for your EMR license. Consult the Frais de cabinet liés à l'utilisation d'un dossier médical électronique to learn more about existing billing codes and general conditions to claim your refund.

Computer equipment and Internet connexion fees are also included in that program! Detailed description is under the title 17.00 Frais de cabinet liés à l'utilisation d'un DME of section VI : autres mesures de compensation ou d'efficience. Modalities and criteria are also shared.

Medical specialists

Up to this date, no program exists to refund EMR license costs for medical specialists. We heard that a new program could be launched soon for them, but it's only a rumor at this time… Ask them for more information if you are interested!
