BlueButtonPRO™ by Darena Solutions becomes the nation’s first ONC certified solution for meeting 21st Century Cures Act requirements for EHR Vendors and Payers.

We are excited to offer this first of a kind plug-and-play solution to to connect providers, payers and patients and accelerate the adoption of FHIR in the healthcare community and reduce development time for EHR Vendors and Payers.

Darena Solutions today announced that BlueButtonPRO™, the company’s comprehensive patient engagement platform, has officially become the nation’s FIRST ever solution to be certified by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for meeting interoperability and patient access provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced two final rules, one by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the other by the ONC, implementing parts of the 21st Century Cures Act. These final rules established Application Programming Interface (API) requirements based on HL7® FHIR® for healthcare providers, EHR vendors and payers to support patients’ access and control of their electronic health information. ONC adopted a rich and rigorous testing tool called Inferno to ensure and verify that API vendors are following the industry standards for FHIR and complying with Cures Act requirements. The certification from Drummond Group, which is authorized by ONC to test FHIR servers using Inferno, validated BlueButtonPRO as the first FHIR based API to pass all the requirements.

BlueButtonPRO™ can be integrated with any EHR to meet the Cures Act requirements mandated by ONC for all EHR Vendors. It also meets and exceeds the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access final rule requirements for payers.

“BlueButtonPRO™ is an end-to-end FHIR solution to connect providers, payers and patients. We are excited to offer this first of a kind ‘plug-and-play’ solution to the market to accelerate the adoption of FHIR within the healthcare community and reduce development time for EHR Vendors and Payers,” said Pawan Jindal, CEO of Darena Solutions.
