Background: Illumysis is the health information technology division of Lumetra and an independent healthcare consulting organization. Lumetra staff, who now form Illumysis, developed and implemented CMS' DOQ-IT program. In March I wrote an article on Illumysis for Health IT World and included a post on this weblog. The article resulted in a question that I would like to address here.
Question: The question is does Illumysis compete with the CMS DOQ-IT Program?
Answer: No. Illumysis provides consulting services to physician practices that do not meet the criteria for participation in the DOQ-IT program.
