Hospitals and Attorneys Recommend Jim Tate
We were fortunate to have Jim’s team help in the development of our attestation and audit preparedness program, and although we didn’t expect we’d be validating the quality of our audit preparedness quite this quickly, we are very pleased with the outcome. We’d highly recommend Jim and his team for this type of service.

I spoke to Jim about the appeal on two different occasions before it was filed and each time I learned something new about the process. Jim made me feel confident about our position and approach to the appeal process. The next time we are audited, I will contact Jim before we ever get to the appeal stage.
Scott Barrilleaux, Chief Executive Officer, Drew Memorial Hospital
We would give Jim Tate’s firm (EMR Advocate) the highest of recommendations. Our regret is that we did not utilize his services prior to receiving an audit letter. He personally used his superior knowledge of the MU attestation requirements to resolve our serious audit issue. It allowed us to avoid a costly and lengthy appeal with CMS. Our hospital is extremely grateful for his level of expertise and professionalism.

I wanted to write to thank you for your assistance with the recent EHR Meaningful Use audit performed for our client. Your extensive knowledge and experience were instrumental in the favorable outcome achieved by the Hospital. I would highly recommend you to guide any of our hospital clients through the daunting audit process.

We were selected to undergo an audit of our Stage 1 meaningful use attestation. I immediately contacted Jim Tate as I recognized him as a leader, author and advocate of the EHR/EMR program required by the government. Jim’s knowledge and comprehensive study of the requirements set forth by CMS were instrumental in helping us achieve a favorable outcome in the audit.
