Certification underscores importance of connecting healthcare communities and delivering functionality beyond individual EHRs to meet Meaningful Use requirements
PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- dbMotion, an innovative provider of connected healthcare solutions, today announced that its inpatient EHR system version 4.2 has been certified by the U.S. Office of the National Coordinator - Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) 2011/2012 EHR Modular Certification* through the Certification Commission For Health Information Technology (CCHIT). The certification covers three use cases: electronic copy of health information, electronic copy of discharge instructions, and exchange of clinical information and patient summary information.
“We are delighted to have achieved this certification,” says Brian Weiss, executive vice president of products for dbMotion. “Many of our clients are striving to comply with meaningful use requirements, but their EHRs alone can’t get them there. The dbMotion™ solution helps providers bridge any existing gaps by providing semantically harmonized data, thereby enabling them to access, exchange and act upon important information within their familiar workflow."
“Healthcare providers today face ever-changing challenges both financially and technologically,” says Peter McClennen, president of dbMotion North America. “Hospitals and health systems are dedicating vast resources to creating connected communities, and we are committed to providing solutions that accelerate their progress.”
The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and that EHR Modules meet one or more, but not all, of the criteria approved by the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible healthcare provider or hospital technology. dbMotion version 4.2 is 2011/2012-compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by HHS. The EHR certification enables healthcare providers to meet the Stage 1 meaningful use standards to qualify for the federal incentive payments established under ARRA. To receive such incentives, healthcare providers must meet the requirements outlined in the CMS EHR Incentive Program. The Health Information Technology for Electronic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) is the component of ARRA designed to increase the use of EHR systems by physicians and hospitals.
