Physicians e-prescribing for Medicare patients are eligible for 2% increase on their Medicare
reimbursement payment

Beginning January 1, 2009, physicians who successfully send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy
rather than writing them out on paper and handing them to the patient will receive a bonus payment of
2% of their overall Medicare reimbursement based upon the utilization of certain CPT codes. For those
not using edgeMED’s Electronic Health Records solution, you can now electronically prescribe from your
office with confidence and security using edge-Rx. edge-Rx is integrated with your Practice
Management software providing a secure, reliable and convenient electronic prescribing solution.

Physicians Quality Reporting Initiative

 •   Receive 1.5% bonus check on total allowed charges.
 •   No enrollment required.
 •   Standard on all edgeMED software.

PQRI is the “Physicians Quality Reporting Initiative.” The Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 man-
dated the establishment of a physician quality reporting system and authorized a payment incentive for
voluntary participation through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

All edgeMED software is PQRI compatible. While CMS is required by law to establish the program,
physician participation is optional. Physicians who participate are eligible for a bonus payment subject to
a cap of 1.5% of total allowed charges for covered Medicare physician fee schedule services.

No enrollment is required in order to participate. Providers can participate by reporting the appropriate
quality measure data on claims submitted to their Medicare claims processing contractor. For detailed
information, please visit the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services web site.
edgeMED's ZOOM Practice Management software is driven by Red Hat Enterprise Linux to provide

unmatched speed, functionality and reliability.


ZOOM capitalizes on the speed, durability and reliability of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Operating

System. In conjunction with PC Workstations utilizing Microsoft Windows XP or Vista, ZOOM allows

medical practices to increase performance, savings and simplicity while providing a hostile environment

for unscrupulous computer infections. Corporate giants, such as IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsys-

tems and even NASA chose to migrate their Windows systems to Linux due to its reliability, efficiency

and its ability to protect their systems from malicious viruses. Some of the features of ZOOM include:
