E-Medapps’ SevaExchangeTM Interface Engine has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. This EHR interface software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
SevaExchangeTM, E-Medapps’ Interface Engine, met the requirements under the “EHR Module Ambulatory 2014” category for the following Meaningful Use criteria: Transition of Care, and Public Health Immunization and Syndromic reporting measures. (170.314(b)(2), 170.314(f) (2,3), 170.314(g)(1,4))
SevaExchangeTM is a rules based interface engine that facilitates sending and receiving of messages between systems in the Health Care industry. In addition to the certification received for the uses above, SevaExchangeTM is used for a wide variety of purposes including translating messages of different types, connecting devices within the clinic to the EHR, providing connectivity to EHR’s for HIE applications, facilitating lab and diagnostic interfacing as well as many other uses.
“Our SevaExchangeTM interface engine has been helping clinics meet their Meaningful Use criteria as well as other uses such as Health Information Exchange (HIE) for many years and we are happy to let our customers know that SevaExchangeTM has met the criteria for certification under the ONC-ACB program.” said Vik Sheshadri, Vice President of Product Development at E-Medapps.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program 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.
