EMR Solution Meets Highest Standards for Security, Functionality and Interoperability

TROY, Mich., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- gloStream, maker of gloEMR and gloPM – the only electronic medical record and practice management software with Microsoft Office built right in – today announced that gloEMR version 6.0 has been certified by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) as a CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR. gloEMR also earned additional certifications for Cardiovascular Medicine and Child Health. CCHIT is a nonprofit organization with the public mission of accelerating the adoption of health IT.

The CCHIT Certified® 2011 certification program provides a rigorous inspection of integrated EHR functionality, interoperability, and security features according to criteria independently developed by CCHIT's multi-stakeholder, expert work groups using the company's published testing methods. Testing is provided by a panel of well-trained experts. The CCHIT 2011 format tests for a variety of important EHR features, including:

  • Clinical decision support functionality
  • Ability to capture and store patient records
  • Authentication and security capability
  • Electronic prescribing and order functionality
  • Overall ease of use
  • Intuitive user interface and workflow

"Having passed CCHIT 2011 certification, gloStream has once again proven that gloEMR has met the highest standards for security, functionality and interoperability," said Mike Sappington, gloStream's CEO. "We believe this recognition is a testament to our tremendous development team that's working diligently to ensure all of our doctor clients have the most functional and easiest to use EMR technology available anywhere."

To increase buyer assurance, all fully certified products in the CCHIT Certified 2011 program undergo additional testing at live sites, and, for ambulatory EHR products, usability is rated, too. Only conditional certification is issued until live site verification is complete and, for ambulatory EHRs, all electronic prescribing certifications are in place.

While there are dozens of CCHIT 2011 certified ambulatory products, gloEMR remains one of the only locally supported CCHIT certified EMRs available. It also comes backed by a 15-Day Money Back Success Guarantee.
