iChartsMD Announces ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification of its Electronic Health Records System

In order to be eligible for government funding under the 2009 economic stimulus package, providers must use EHR technology that has been certified to allow providers to achieve “meaningful use.” These are categorized by the U.S. government as technology that improves care coordination, reduces healthcare disparities, engages patients and their families, improves population and public health, and ensures adequate privacy and security. The certification received by iChartsMD fulfills this requirement.

(Malibu, CA – June 9, 2011) – iChartsMD announced today that its electronic health records product (iChartsMD v4.3) is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR by the Drummond Group.  The 2011/2012 criteria supports the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The U.S. government is encouraging a movement toward electronic health records as a way to foster improvements in healthcare quality, safety, efficiency and access.

The certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and that EHR Modules meet all of the criteria approved by the secretary of health and human services for either eligible provider or hospital technology. It 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.

The certification received by iChartsMD fulfills this requirement.

“We are extremely excited to have received certification on all of the Clinical Quality Measures while again passing on our first attempt.

Even though the ONC requirements were to just implement 9 out of 44 Clinical Quality Measures, it didn’t feel right for us to just implement the minimum.  When it comes to patient care, you should never do the minimum.

I assure you that this mentality and vision for the company will never change. “
