ACOM Health announced today that RAPID Documentation 7.0 EHR chiropractic software, is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR 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).
“We are very pleased that RAPID 7.0 Complete EHR is ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by CCHIT®” said ACOM Health Vice President of Sales Sam Mikhail. “We believe that ACOM Health’s RAPID 7.0 software is now the first and only chiropractic specific EHR software at the time of this press release to receive Complete EHR ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification by CCHIT®. There are other vendors that market their EHR products to chiropractors and were awarded certification; however, according to our knowledge none of them are fully dedicated to the chiropractic marketplace as ACOM Health is.”
