Upgrade to Get Paid - Government Reimbursements for the Health Care Industry!

Health information technology is an important part of the medical field, but keeping up with innovations in technology can be costly. The United States government will invest more than $19 billion towards updating and revitalizing the health care industry under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Thanks to this bill, medical care providers who install Electronic Health Records Systems can receive large reimbursements from the government. Doctors, hospitals and health systems now have the opportunity to cash in on government incentives by installing an Electronic Health System for the first time or through other health care IT projects and upgrades. Install new equipment, or invest in upgrading current technology to enhance your business without breaking the bank.

Through either Medicare or Medicaid, office-based physicians are eligible to collect incentive payments when implementing Electronic Health Records Systems in their office. These government incentives were creates to reduce health care costs by quickening the adoption of IT systems in health care settings. Patients and health care providers alike will benefit from the use of progressive medical technology.

Tiger Leasing has worked with health care professionals to equip them with the qualified Electronic Health Records Systems they need to improve their business and qualify for these government incentives. Rather than buying the medical equipment needed to upgrade an office, health care providers can lease the equipment. By leasing medical equipment, health care providers can upgrade their technology while conserving their cash. In some cases, acquiring medical equipment, such as EHR systems and other health care IT equipment, medical providers may be eligible for a large reimbursement from the government! Contact the specialists at Tiger Leasing today for more information on medical equipment leasing and government incentives!

Simplifying Email

Email is supposed to save you time and resources. In the blink of an eye, you can send reports, videos, pictures and updates to just about anyone. With all the benefits, it's easy to believe that email is the way to simplify your life. In the wrong hands though, email can be a complicating factor. From daily newsletters to family updates an inbox can get overloaded quickly. Too often, we get caught up in the "simplicity" of emails, and they can become overwhelming.

So how do we keep emails simple and use them efficiently in our day to day life? The key is to take control of your inbox, both at work and at home. Actively manage your emails, so they don't take over!

Simplify your Emails:


  • Write shorter emails - This will make things simpler for yourself, as well as the recipient!

  • Stay Focused - Keep your emails simple, address one topic at a time. This will keep your emails shorter and allow your recipients to focus on the task at hand more quickly.

  • Use the Subject Line - Create a specific subject so your recipients will know immediately what your email is about. Letting them know you need feedback or an immediate response in the subject line is beneficial as well.

  • Organize your Folders - Your email system allows you to create folders so that you can organize your emails, but often we can't keep the folders in check!

  • Format a Signature - Contact information is so important, especially in business. Make sure your contact information is easily accessible in your emails. Using your email program's Signature tool is an easy way to include your important details name, email address, phone number, Website and other relevant information). This is beneficial for your recipients, and it can save you time as well!

  • Keep you Flags in Check - How "Urgent" is that email, really? The more you use the Urgent feature, the less significant it becomes.

  • Watch your Newsletter Subscriptions - Sure subscribing to newsletters is an easy way to get the information you want, but how many of those newsletters are actually valuable to you? Prioritize and get unsubscribe from the newsletters that are just cluttering up your inbox.

Productive Meeting Tips

There are meetings happening every day, across the county - in board rooms, over breakfast tables, by phone and online. However they are organized, meetings take time away from people's work days, and as we all know, time is money. Optimizing your meetings is a beneficial way to make the most of everyone's time and resources. Tiger Leasing has put together a list of tips to help you make the most of your meeting times!

Productive Meeting Tips:

  • Use your email - When you need to share news or updates with a team, rather than scheduling a meeting, use your email. Send out a mass email with the news to all of the parties concerned. This will save time and resources.

  • Tailor your guest list - Only invite participants that need to be there. Inviting unnecessary meeting attendees will only add to the confusion and length of a meeting.

  • Share an agenda - Create action steps or a To-Do list for your meetings. When you schedule the meeting, share your agenda with those that will be attending. This will allow everyone to be on the same page as to the purpose of the meeting. This also gives everyone time to prepare, so that they are ready with the resources and answers you will be expecting from them.

  • Get there early - Arrive at the meeting site early so that you can set up for your meeting. When you ask people to take time out of their day to meet with you, be prepared for them. Are there plenty of available seats? Does the space have the necessary technology?

  • Avoid Mondays and Fridays - For most people Mondays are filled with bursting inboxes and trying to schedule the rest of the week. Fridays are often spent finishing up projects or even out of the office on an early weekend. Make your meeting times work for as many people as possible, so you won't have to spend time rescheduling or catching people up on things they missed.

  • Bring extras - It's always a good idea to print off a few extra copies of any materials you'll be using in the meeting. Whether someone spilled their coffee on the spreadsheet you sent out, or an extra guest shows up, it's always better to be prepared.

  • Control the tangents - A discussion can quickly elevate to a disagreement and even full on arguments. Reign speakers in and mediate so that the meeting remains focused and productive. Don't be afraid to take control and guide the meeting back on track.

  • Establish an end time - When you schedule a meeting, you determine a time to start it. Too often, we fail to establish when the meeting will be over. By creating an ending time before the meeting, you will be able to keep your participants engaged. This also shows that you respect their time, as this practice allows everyone to schedule other aspects of their day.

  • Send out recaps - After a meeting is over, take the time to record what happened and what needs to get done. Send out a recap of the meeting, including what the next steps are. This will keep you organized, and everyone else on the same page. This will help with team accountability and organization as well.

  • Rethink standing meetings - When you have weekly or monthly standing meetings, you can get sucked into the routine. Evaluate the purpose of the meeting, and determine how necessary it really is. Make sure you continue those weekly meetings because they are still important, not just because you get stuck in the routine.

  • Keep distractions to a minimum - Ask that cell phones be kept on vibrate, discourage participants from checking emails or making phone calls during your meeting. For longer meetings, schedule breaks so that participants can access their technology. Things will get done quicker and more efficiently if you are able to minimize the distractions.

  • Be consistent - When people know what to expect from the meetings you run, they will be appreciative. Set the tone of your meeting, consistently deliver productive, focused meetings and your co-workers will return the favor.
