Your Trusted Advisor for Using Health IT


Health IT can be a powerful tool to transform and improve healthcare.

Electronic Health Records (EHRs), in particular, have the ability to assist providers with clinical decision support, allowing providers from different systems to share information with each other so that they can increase efficiencies, reduce errors, optimize patient care, and engage patients and their families with owning their own healthcare.

The Qualis Health Regional Extension Center puts IT to work for you and your patients.

Whether it’s making sense of your data, optimizing your workflow, or achieving meaningful use, we make using your technology simple and straight-forward. From small rural practices to large multi-physician networks, our health IT experts have made technology work for thousands of organizations. We can do the same for you.

Over the past several years we’ve helped thousands of Washington and Idaho practitioners bring in more than 60 million in incentive dollars to those states. For more details, see our Results page.

Qualis Health’s Regional Extension Center (REC) is one of the nation’s leading RECs for health IT. Our progress:

  • Enrolled over 4,200 providers into the Qualis Health REC program, almost 2,000 more providers than our goal.
  • Assisted more than 2,400 eligible professionals (EPs) in achieving meaningful use, meeting 100% of our meaningful use goals.
  • Helped Washington & Idaho EPs qualify for nearly $60 million in CMS incentive dollars.


Consider these key accomplishments:

  • Partnering with the Qualis Health Regional Extension Center makes you twice as likely to get your meaningful use incentive check compared to any other solution.*
  • 95% of Qualis Health REC enrollees reported that the REC helped them attain meaningful use more quickly.
