The costs of a VCUR 2008 electronic medical record (EMR)
solution is split into one-time costs and recurring costs.
One-time costs are the necessary hardware, software, services
and other eligible costs necessary to set up the EMR solution.
- The maximum amount physicians will be reimbursed for these
costs is $14,000 (70% of $20,000), including GST.
- These costs are reimbursed as milestones are achieved during
the implementation of the EMR solution (see table below).
Recurring costs include items to keep the EMR solution running,
such as hardware and software maintenance, data centre services,
Internet service provider costs, help desk support, testing release
planning and training. Recurring costs begin one month after
Milestone 3 (Go-Live).
