Wayne, PA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 17, 2011
Core Solutions, Inc. announced today that its Cx360 Provider 4.0, a cross-agency case management/EHR system, is ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as an EHR Module on March 11, 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).
“As a leader in developing innovative EHR software for behavioral health, Core Solutions is delighted that our product, Cx360 Provider 4.0, has received certification from CCHIT,” said Rachna Bagdi, COO of Core Solutions, Inc. “Making sure that our customers have an integrated, secure EHR system is a top priority for us. With our product’s certification, customers will have the utmost confidence that Core Solutions offers a high level of functionality that provides users with the ability to deliver improved quality of care.”
Cx360 Provider 4.0 has achieved complete security and demographic modular certification, and Ms. Bagdi added that Core Solutions is currently working toward full certification and is looking to achieve this in the coming weeks.
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.
Companies offering ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certified EHR modules may return to test additional criteria and certify their products as Complete EHRs later. Companies certifying products early in the ONC-ATCB certification process must quickly adapt their products to meet the evolving nature of the NIST test procedures, particularly for electronic prescribing. ONC-ATCB product certification updates will be available at http://www.cchit.org as they occur.
“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.
Cx360 Provider 4.0’s certification number is CC-1112-985640-1 ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification conferred by CCHIT 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.
