iPatientCare, Inc. is known for its pioneering effort and innovations in the domain of healthcare technology for more than 15 years and has also been deeply involved in evolving and implementing standards within the industry, and committed to remain compliant with the most recent standards and certifications. “We are proud to be one of the very few EHR products to get ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Complete Ambulatory EHR certification in October 2010 and ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Complete Inpatient EHR Certification now, thus proving our product leadership within the US healthcare IT space. This shows our commitment to iPatientCare users – individual providers, identified as Eligible Professionals by CMS, and institutional providers, such as, hospitals across the United States of America – in their quest for providing improved care and practicing evidence based medicine. iPatientCare is one of the rarest of rare HCIT vendors to have one single Web browser based core product that has been architected and developed ground-up using Microsoft .net Framework and SQL Server. There have been no third-party products that got “white-labeled” or acquired inorganically. I am extremely proud of my colleagues at iPatientCare and their hard-work, dedication, and genius in architecting and design,” said Arnaz Bharucha, Senior Technology Officer, Inpatient EHR Product Group, iPatientCare, Inc.
“Committing to technology innovations for inpatient and outpatient care providers to provide better outcomes at lower costs meaningfully for 15 years is a challenge and we are very proud to have succeeded in accomplishing our business mission and goals year after year. Getting these innovations “certified” and “accredited” by the world-class standards is a true recognition of iPatientCare’s vision as a leader in this space, engineering excellence, and process maturity allowing it to scale up rapidly. Adding ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Complete Inpatient EHR Certification as one more feather in iPatientCare’s cap is indeed a great achievement. We both are honored and feel very proud of our products, people, and processes.”, said Kedar Mehta, CTO and Udayan Mandavia, CEO in a joint statement.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and 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.
