WellCentive solutions make it easy for physicians to proactively manage their patients’ care, and we’re confident that we can now make it easier for them to qualify for Meaningful Use incentives.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 16, 2011
WellCentive announced today that its EHR-MU product, a Meaningful Use EHR, is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR on September 27, 2011 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable Eligible Provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. 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).
“This certification is an important step in the evolution of our product offering,” said Frank Murphy, WellCentive President and CEO. “WellCentive solutions make it easy for physicians to proactively manage their patients’ care, and we’re confident that we can now make it easier for them to qualify for Meaningful Use incentives. This funding can make a real difference in allowing providers to invest in technology that will take them into the future.”
Mason Beard, Vice President of Product Development, added, “In 2010, our Registry-based EHR solution was certified by CCHIT as a modular solution. Since then, we have been working diligently to meet the requirements for complete certification. The Meaningful Use program is an important step toward better healthcare management, and we believe these new initiatives will ultimately improve the health of millions of Americans.”
The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology.
“CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives,” said Karen M. Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.
