SuccessEHS Recognized as CMS Qualified Vendor for PQRS

Practice Management and EHR Software Solution Boasts Multiple Certifications

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SuccessEHS, a nationally recognized, streamlined practice management and electronic health record (EHR / EMR) software vendor has achieved Qualified EHR Vendor status with CMS for the 2011 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS, formerly, the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative or PQRI) EHR Program.  

Of the nearly sixty vendors that began the qualification process, SuccessEHS was one of twenty-seven vendors to achieve Qualified Vendor status.  Of those, SuccessEHS is 1 of only 5 vendors with products which have also achieved certification by an ONC ACTB as a Complete EHR (SuccessEHS 6.0) in addition to being an unconditionally CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR (SuccessEHS 5.3) with a 5-star usability rating, helping physicians further narrow the selection process when searching for an EHR.  

"This achievement by our Interoperability team demonstrates SuccessEHS' commitment to early adoption of industry standards and to helping our customers meet Meaningful Use requirements early and easily." said Tina Graham, COO at SuccessEHS.

The Physician Quality Reporting System is a voluntary reporting program that provides an incentive payment to identified eligible professionals who satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered professional Medicare Physician Fee Schedule services furnished to Medicare Part B FFS beneficiaries.  

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires that CMS align Meaningful Use reporting with PQRS by January 1, 2012.  While the Final Rule for Meaningful Use does not require electronic reporting of CQMs in 2011, it will be required by 2012.  Qualified Vendors, such as SuccessEHS, are one step ahead in the process.
