Meeting Cures Act requirements made easy: How Tebra's software helps independent practices

Tebra offers solutions to help independent practices meet the requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act — including certified EHR technology, interoperability features, telehealth capabilities, and more.

The 21st Century Cures Act is a piece of healthcare legislation that aims to accelerate the development and approval of new drugs and medical devices, improve healthcare interoperability, and invest in cutting-edge research. One aspect of the Cures Act that has important implications for independent practice physicians is the requirement that all healthcare providers who participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs use certified electronic health record (EHR) technology. 

Here are some key points about the Cures Act: 

  • The patient is at the center of the Cures Act, putting patients in charge of their health records
  • Patients need more power in their healthcare, and access to information is key to making that happen
  • Under HIPAA, patients already have a legal right to their data electronically. The Cures Act supports this by enhancing access to clinical data electronically
  • The Cures Act promotes innovation in health care technology to deliver better information, more conveniently
  • It also promotes transparency, using computers, smartphones, and software to provide opportunities for the public to regain visibility in the services, quality and costs of healthcare

At Tebra, we recognize the challenges that independent practice physicians face in navigating the complex requirements of the Cures Act and implementing certified EHR technology in their practices. That’s why we’ve developed innovative software solutions that can help them meet the requirements of the Cures Act, while also improving patient care and streamlining administrative tasks.

Ways that Tebra can help independent practice physicians

Tebra’s EHR technology not only meets the requirements of the Cures Act, but also facilitates healthcare interoperability and telehealth. It can be a valuable tool for independent practice physicians looking to streamline their workflows and improve patient care.

Certified EHR technology

Tebra’s EHR technology is certified to meet the requirements of the Cures Act through the ONC Health IT Certification Program, which means that independent practice physicians can rest assured that their EHR technology is compliant with federal regulations. Our EHR software is user-friendly and customizable. With it, physicians can create tailored workflows that meet the specific needs of their practice.


One Cures Act goal is to improve healthcare interoperability — how different healthcare systems and providers can share patient data. Tebra’s solutions facilitate interoperability by allowing physicians to securely share patient data with other providers and healthcare systems.Our software also integrates with a wide range of third-party applications. This allows physicians to streamline their workflows and improve the efficiency of their practice.


The Cures Act includes provisions that expand access to telehealth services. Tebra’s software includes a telehealth module that allows physicians to conduct virtual visits with patients. This can help improve patient access to care and reduce the burden of in-person visits.

Practice management

Tebra’s billing platform streamlines the billing process for practices and is a critical component of our practice management software. Our platform makes it easy for healthcare providers to submit claims, track payments, and manage their revenue cycle. With real-time eligibility verification and integration with EHRs, providers can easily access and manage patient data and avoid costly billing errors and denials. Additionally, our platform provides valuable reporting and analytics, giving providers insights into their revenue cycle and financial performance.

By reducing administrative burden and improving the accuracy and efficiency of billing processes, Tebra helps healthcare providers maximize their revenue and minimize the risk of costly errors and denials. With our user-friendly platform, providers can manage claims from multiple payers, including: 

  • Medicare and Medicaid 
  • Private insurance companies 
  • Self-pay patients 

By monitoring key metrics like average payment times, denial rates, and collection rates, providers can identify areas for improvement and take proactive steps to optimize their billing processes and maximize revenue.
