With enki, NextServices has created a simpler way for physicians to implement electronic health records and qualify for meaningful use incentives under ARRA
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
enki, the EHR platform powered by NextServices, has received the federal government’s “meaningful use” stamp of approval by earning complete EHR certification. enki is a breakthrough cloud-based EHR platform that extends to iPad and Android tablet devices. Physicians can now access their records wherever they are using enki’s secure cloud-based services that automatically synchronize with all devices. Tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) program, the EHR software is 2011/2012 compliant, in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“Today it’s frustrating for physicians to manage their practices and see patients while trying to keep up with complex technology changes. With enki, our team has created a simpler way for physicians to implement electronic health records and qualify for meaningful use incentives under ARRA,” says NextServices’ principal and co-founder, Praveen Suthrum.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology -- a key component of the federal government’s push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.

enki, which met the requirements for ONC-ATCB for Complete EHR and/or EHR Modules, is not just a standalone EHR product but a platform developed with the future of healthcare delivery in mind. enki features include:

enki will be available February 2012 in the United States and will be formally launched at the 2012 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference in Las Vegas.
“The need to leverage information technology in the healthcare industry is huge – as the quality of care and efficiency benefits that come with computerization can really make a difference in the overall patient experience. We’re ready to help transform the industry by providing the sophisticated software testing services that ensure that vendors and hospitals are offering systems that are capable of meeting the meaningful use standards required to obtain incentive funds as well as the rich functionality required to move the clinical care needle forward,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group.
