Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Orion Health, Inc., global leaders in Health Information Exchange(HIE) solutions, announced today that the Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine and Rhapsody Connect versions 4.1 are compliant and certified as an Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR) Module by ICSA labs, an independent division of Verizon.
Christopher Ward, Orion Health Senior Vice President of Marketing says the certification is advantageous to both customers and partners, especially those looking for a public health reporting solution. Rhapsody 4.1 helps providers and hospitals seeking eligibility for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) by assuring they meet 100% of the security/privacy- and public health-related criteria.
“Rhapsody is one of the most broadly adopted and reliable solutions available and now offers an even greater value by helping customers meet government requirements for Meaningful Use while simultaneously helping them plan for future growth and innovation. Rhapsody’s depth of functionality helped in meeting all eight of the government mandated security objectives and in turn, supports those organizations who are looking for superior security and overall solution integrity. Similarly, we drew on our experience across the 52 state and local health departments where Rhapsody is currently deployed to also meet the ONC's public health criteria,” Mr. Ward continues.
In addition to ONC certification, Rhapsody is registered as a Class I Medical Device by the US Food and Drug Administration. The combined certifications demonstrate Orion Health’s commitment to quality and high standards in producing healthcare technology solutions.
“Another key benefit of Orion Health solutions is that they do not require an organization to replace entire systems, meaning they can continue to leverage their existing IT investments,” Mr. Ward concludes.
Orion Health’s intensive focus on serving the healthcare industry has driven Rhapsody’s success and adoption both as an independent data integration platform and an embedded component in medical devices. Currently, Orion Health helps facilities and healthcare communities that connect 35 million patients with tens of thousands of active users. Rhapsody has been developed with a focus on the needs of IT professionals, with the inclusion of features and functionality including testing and secure FTP options that ease the migration process and streamlined message exchange between clinical and business systems, both internally and externally in anticipation of future HIE activity.
