Netsmart Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of software and services for health and human services organizations, today announced that its CMHC/MIS 4.2 electronic health record (EHR) software for behavioral health provider organizations has achieved 100 percent ONC-ATCB ARRA Ambulatory Certification.
“We are fully committed to providing clients of each of our enterprise platforms a direct, complete and comprehensive path to qualify for ARRA Meaningful Use funding,” said Michael Valentine, chief executive officer, Netsmart Technologies. “Meaningful Use can provide invaluable financial resources to help our clients better serve their consumers. That’s why we were a strong advocate for the program’s establishment and are at the forefront of advocacy to provide behavioral health with the same full access to incentive funds as already provided to other healthcare entities.”
CMHC/MIS 4.2 software is now designated as a Complete EHR on the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Certified Health IT Product List. Netsmart was the first behavioral healthcare software provider to offer a Complete ARRA-certified EHR when it achieved Ambulatory and Inpatient certification for its Avatar® 2011 enterprise software in December 2010. In addition, Netsmart’s Insight™ 7.0 public health solution achieved ARRA Modular Certification earlier this year and is expected to attain 100 percent ONC-ATCB ARRA Ambulatory Certification in the third quarter of 2011.
Testing was conducted under Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records ONC-ATCB program.
