New York, NY (PRWEB) March 25, 2008
The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT®) today announced that CareData Solutions Corporation's product, The CareData Solution 2.7 is pre-market, conditionally CCHIT Certified®, and meets the Commission's ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) criteria for 2007.
Premarket, conditionally certified EHRs are new products that are fully certified once their operational use at a physician office site has been verified. Ambulatory EHRs are designed for physician offices and clinics where most Americans get their health care. CCHIT - an independent, nonprofit organization - is the Recognized Certification Body in the United States for certifying health information technology products.
In the second year of the program's operation, the criteria and testing have been significantly enhanced. The Commission added 96 criteria to the 151 original requirements from last year. As a CCHIT Certified product, The CareData Solution has been tested and passed inspection of 100 percent of a set of updated criteria for functionality, interoperability and security.
For 2007, the Commission raised the bar from the previous year's criteria. Ambulatory EHRs now must include electronic prescribing, demonstrate an ability to receive lab results, and show enhanced patient safety, quality and security features," said Mark Leavitt, M.D. and chair of CCHIT. "Investment in 2007 certified ambulatory EHRs gives providers even more powerful tools to improve quality, safety and efficiency while protecting the privacy of health information."
The CCHIT Certified mark -- a "seal of approval" for EHR products -- provides the first consensus-based, government-recognized benchmark for ambulatory EHR products. By looking to products with the CCHIT Certified seal, physicians and other providers can reduce their risk in selecting an EHR product, allowing them to focus their evaluation on the special needs of their practices.
Selene Kepila, CEO and founder of CareData Solutions, was inspired to design the company's EHR/PHR solution from a traumatic experience involving incorrect reporting and tracking of abnormal test results at a women's clinic. "That is why the backbone of our EHR is impeccable patient tracking with an advanced warning system that generates and posts alerts" says Kepila. "If abnormal test results are missed, treatments are missed, or medication incompatibilities arise, an alert is automatically posted by The CareData Solution."
CareData Solutions Corporation™ is a software and services firm that offers a complete interoperable electronic medical record system that links patient, provider and payer together with one web based solution. Our products are engineered from more than 18 years of testing and information gathering in doctors' offices, clinics and hospitals. We found accurate patient tracking to be the primary concern in every facility; it became the primary directive of our product development. The result is a product that tracks patient data in real time and generates alerts if follow-up is missed for an abnormal test result or a critical treatment.
