Dr. Thomas Asciuto is the 70th Argus physician to achieve "Meaningful Use" on the Optum system. Argus physicians have earned over "$1.7M" in EMR Stimulus funds to date. Dr. Asciuto should be eligible to receive the full $44,000 in MediCare EMR Stimulus funds over 4 years.

Dr. Asciuto's goal was "No paper charts" and to be completely paperless when he moved to his new office and converted to Optum. He not only achieved his goal but also successfully attested for "Meaningful Use" 90 days after going live with Argus on the Optum system.

Argus is a certified Channel Partner for the award winning Optum Practice Management & EMR system, which is a fully integrated web-based system.

Argus has a team of five certified trainers in Long Beach and has over 100 physicians in some stage of EMR implementation. Argus has set a goal of having 90 physicians achieve Meaningful Use by the end of 2013.

Argus' physician clients on the Optum EMR system may also be eligible to receive between $5,000 and $10,000 in EMR cost reimbursement from Lakewood IPA.
