4medica announced today that 4medica Ambulatory Cloud Integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR) version 10.4 is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as an EHR Module on July 26, 2011 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful usemeasures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
“We believe this certification for our Ambulatory Cloud iEHR combined with last month’s certification of our Inpatient Cloud iEHR leaves our company well positioned to offer physician practices easy to use, rapidly installable and affordable SaaS solutions to qualify for meaningful use incentives,” said Oleg Bess, M.D., 4medica’s CEO. “We’re proud to offer one of the industry’s very few certified Cloud hosted electronic health records for both acute and ambulatory care settings that empower physicians and hospitals to streamline workflow, exchange information, and enhance and coordinate quality care.”
The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more — but not all — of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology. Companies offering ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certified EHR modules may return to test additional criteria and certify their products as Complete EHRs later. Companies certifying products early in the ONC-ATCB certification process must quickly adapt their products to meet the evolving nature of the NIST test procedures, particularly for electronic prescribing. ONC-ATCB product certification updates will be available at http://www.cchit.org as they occur.
“CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives,” said Karen M. Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.
4medica Ambulatory Cloud iEHR version 10.4’s certification number is CC-1112-401670-6. ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nor does it guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
