The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

Daniel Brody, President and CEO, stated that “For over twenty years HDS has concentrated its efforts on meeting the needs of smaller medical practices. MedLedger 5’s certification is more evidence of our commitment to bring affordable EHR and practice management solutions to this deserving market.
