Additional Requirements for Clinics with Multiple Locations
The following information is one part of POSP's Program Guidelines. Please reference
the complete guidelines as needed.
When physicians and/or QSPs wish to combine information for
multiple clinics* that are undergoing implementation of a VCUR 2008
EMR solution, the following administrative requirements must be met
to proceed with funding:
1. The QSP may submit multiple
related clinics for funding assessment as a single package.
2. Each physician who is receiving
POSP funding must be listed at one specific location.
3. The cost per physician unit at
each location must be specified. The cost per physician unit may be
the same at all locations or different at each location, depending
on the clinics' and QSPs' assessment of which costs are
attributable at each location.
4. Each location must have their
total one-time (hardware, software and services) and recurring fees
specified. This is only required if all locations do not have the
same per physician unit price.
5. The QSP may elect to provide a
single combined quote for all related clinics, or individual
quotes, if the above information is provided.
6. Each separate location should
have a separate Approved Project Plan. If a single Approved Project
Plan is provided then each location should be referenced within the
plan, specifically identifying the associated implementation
7. Each separate location must have
a separate milestone sign-off document for Go-Live, Initial
Implementation Status Review or the Final Implementation Status
8. The QSP does not need to inform
POSP if a physician moves between clinics that were submitted in a
single package. If the physician moves to a clinic that was not
part of the related clinics package, POSP must be informed as per
the program guidelines.
*For example, clinics that are related in some fashion; either
the clinics are managed or owned by the same corporate entity, or
one or more clinics are considered satellite clinics to a main
