INFIAN’S TIME EHR RECEIVES ONC HIT CERTIFICATION
INFIAN announced today that TIME v7.2 SP17, is compliant with the ONC 2011 Edition criteria and was certified as a Complete EHR on July 31, 2013 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable Eligible Provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2011 Edition 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).
“By achieving certification of the TIME System we show our strongest commitment to the renal industry," said Beth Evans, CEO of Infian. “We believe we are the only integrated dialysis EHR and billing system to achieve this certification. Without a doubt it is a milestone event in the history of the TIME System – one for which our team should be immensely proud.”
