Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
autoMedSys, LLC’s AutoMedSys Practice Manager version 12 has received the federal government’s “meaningful use” stamp of approval by earning Complete Electronic Health Record (EHR) Ambulatory certification. Tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) program, this EHR software is 2011/2012 compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
autoMedSys, LLC is an Atlanta-based Healthcare IT solutions provider. autoMedSys products include a comprehensive highly scalable integrated clinical management system for medical claims processing and provider billing, patient appointment scheduling, e-prescription writing, laboratory testing interface, maintaining EHRs and digital storage for doctors of various specialties and practices. autoMedSys can support practices of any size, irrespective of the geographical distribution of the providers. It supports multi-facilities practices regardless geographical location of the facilities. It was designed to support practices from simple to complex structure, and physicians groups of different hierarchies.
autoMedSys system was designed to provide a more robust and efficient system allowing doctors and their team members to streamline the “back office” systems and billing procedures while they perform their daily routine with patients. autoMedSys solutions can be deployed in the cloud, or in the doctor offices as preferred by the clinicians. Due to a series of automations built into the system, autoMedSys has gained a reputation over its competitors of helping doctors to maximize revenue and minimize losses. This solution supports all physician office activities, from scheduling and patient account, physician exam and EHR through to billing and collections.
The autoMedSys EHR certification allows doctors and their practices to be eligible for CMS incentive payments to enhance old and outdated systems, and to upgrade them up to the standards required to participate in modern healthcare initiatives that will be mandatory beginning in 2014. Certified EHR technology gives assurance to purchasers and other users that an EHR system or module offers the necessary technological capability, functionality, and security to help meet the meaningful use criteria.
“This certification validates that our software solution can help providers take part in the electronic revolution that is reverberating across the healthcare industry. Healthcare providers can now leverage our software to not only make significant quality of care improvements but also achieve meaningful use and qualify for incentive funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). We are proud to offer the opportunity to truly improve care in our communities,” says Scott Zust, Chairman of AutoMedSys.
The certification was obtained through the extensive procedures outlined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), through an accredited ATCB, Drummond Group, Inc. 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.
“The need to leverage information technology in the healthcare industry is huge – as the quality of care and efficiency benefits that come with computerization can really make a difference in the overall patient experience. We’re ready to help transform the industry by providing the sophisticated software testing services that ensure that vendors and hospitals are offering systems that are capable of meeting the meaningful use standards required to obtain incentive funds as well as the rich functionality required to move the clinical care needle forward,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group. “We have been testing software for more than a decade and are ready to leverage our extensive experience handling sophisticated systems in complex industries as well as dealing with complicated technical issues such as interoperability and security.”
This Complete EHR is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ATCB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
