Greenway Medical Technologies has announced that Greenway PrimeSUITE 2014 (17.0) is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as a Complete EHR on Feb. 6, 2013 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
“We view Greenway’s complete EHR certification as an important achievement to support the flexibility Stage 2 allows physician practices and health systems in the selection of measures and attestation as well as innovative technology,” said Tee Green, Greenway® president and chief executive officer. “Complete certification this early helps our customers plan well in advance for care coordination approaches that will best suit patients and integrated communities of health while improving population outcomes and system sustainability.”
The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2014 Edition criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more — but not all — of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services for either eligible provider or hospital technology.
Greenways PrimeSUITE 2014’s certification number is CC-2014-699072-4. ONC HIT certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
