NYU Langone Medical Center in New York is using the Stark Act exemption to offer remotely hosted ambulatory electronic records software to affiliated physicians.

The medical center, comprising three hospitals, last fall began rolling out the EHR from Verona, Wis.-based Epic Systems Corp. to its faculty group practice. Now, New York Epilepsy and Neurology is the first private practice to go live on the software. Clinicians also have access to patients' emergency, outpatient and inpatient records in the hospital, and can electronically order tests.

NYU Langone will roll out the EHR to other practices during the next two years. Nearly 700 physicians in private practice have admitting privileges in the three hospitals.
