Costs and Limitations

Emdeon attests that our Clinical Exchange EHR-Lite (Clinician) product version 8.4 may require ongoing licensing fees per provider per month. These fees support and establish interfaces for reporting to immunization registries and public health agencies (170.314.f.2 and 170.314.f.3), online patient services which allow patients to view, download and transmit their health information, and secure messaging which allows patients and providers to communicate via the online portal (170.314.e.1 and 170.314.e.3). These fees are a flat license fee, have no technical, practical or contractual limitations, and apply to all the services listed above.
