Latest Version of gloStream's Electronic Medical Record Includes Meaningful Use Dashboard, Enhanced Custom Reporting and Improved Interoperability Features
TROY, Mich., Jan. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- gloStream, maker of gloEMR and gloPM – the only electronic medical record ("EMR") and practice management ("PM") software with Microsoft Office built right in – today announced the release of gloEMR 6.0., the sixth major upgrade to the gloEMR product line. Like its predecessor versions, gloEMR 6.0 leverages a variety of Microsoft technology such as the .NET platform, SQL Server and Microsoft Office so users have access to the most powerful and widely used technology available anywhere.
gloEMR offers a host of new features doctors can use to improve efficiency, productivity, and compliance with meaningful use criteria, which they must prove to collect Stimulus incentive funding. This includes meaningful use and clinical quality measure dashboards that allow practice staff to track their compliance against all established criteria, in real time. In addition, the dashboards provide a mechanism for staff to pull data and report meaningful user status to the government, a key feature for all physicians seeking to acquire Stimulus funding.
"The tens of thousands of hours we've spent developing and testing gloEMR 6.0 have resulted in a product that is feature-rich, flexible and customizable to the specific needs of each practice we serve," said Piyush Khanna, gloStream's Chief Information Officer. "gloEMR 6.0 provides doctors with important tools to ensure meaningful use compliance while also maximizing productivity via dashboards, personal health record integration, reporting and much, much more."
Additional, important key features within gloEMR include:
- A fully customizable main dashboard homepage area.
- HL7-standard Continuity of Care Documents ("CCDs") that can be sent and synched with other EMRs as well as personal health record applications such as Microsoft's HealthVault.
- gloLabs Clearinghouse which provides access to more than 150 Labs.
- Microsoft Reporting Services integration which offers the ability to create customizable reports based on clinical and financial information.
- E&M coding and support for SNOMED.
gloEMR 6.0 was one of the very first EMRs to be ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certified through the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology ("CCHIT"). As such, doctors using gloEMR 6.0 can be confident it contains all of the functionality needed for them to demonstrate meaningful use and collect their Stimulus payments.
