Michael Nusimow, CEO and Co-Founder of DrChrono.com, announced today that he guarantees the company’s iPad EMR (electronic medical record) platform will meet meaningful use criteria.
“We at DrChrono.com have been closely following the development of meaningful use and are working to ensure that our iPad EMR platform will be in compliance with the criteria laid out by the CMS,” said Nusimow.
The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final rule on Monday July 12, 2010, which will be used by the government to qualify physicians who implement EMR systems and demonstrate meaningful use for a $44,000 stimulus. Qualifying EMR systems must satisfy 15 core requirements, and also comply with at least five of an additional 10 optional features.
The DrChrono.com EMR platform is the first native EMR system for the Apple iPad. This robuts EMR platform is integrated into a comprehensive Web-based practice management system, including a robust SaaS billing platform.
As of press time, DrChrono.com’s iPad EMR platform was found to already be in compliance with the most significant of the 15 core criteria. Updates will be rolled out over the next few months to complete the requirements.
Dr. Matthew Krasucki, Senior Medical Advisor for DrChrono.com stated, “The ONC is still accepting applications for companies to evaluate EMR systems. Specific criteria will be tested in at least three stages starting January 2011 through 2014. Our customers can rest assured that our iPad EMR platform will meet the requirements well in advance of each deadline.”
DrChrono.com has created the world’s first native iPad Electronic Medical Record Platform available for free download in the iTunes App Store. The DrChrono.com iPad EMR platform is paired with a hosted SaaS (Software as a Service) practice management backend that provides electronic medical billing and scheduling over the web. The DrChrono.com solution allows healthcare providers to achieve meaningful use of EMR technology while modernizing and streamlining their medical billing and accounts receivable.
