T-System’s T SystemEV 2.7 Receives ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification For Eligible Providers

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- T-System, Inc., announced today that T SystemEV® Version 2.7 is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as an EHR Module on October 1, 2010 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

“Meeting Meaningful Use requirements is critical for many hospitals, and T-System can help make it happen. Implementing CPOE in the ED is one of the fastest, lowest risk ways to meet the CPOE Meaningful Use requirement, and T-System offers a complete and certified solution to do this,” said Sunny Sanyal, T-System CEO. “With one of the shortest implementation times in the industry and a complete solution delivered out of the box, T SystemEV can be up and running faster, allowing our clients to receive reimbursement sooner.”

The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology.

“CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives,” said Karen M. Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.

2011/2012 certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nor does it guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.

T SystemEV, Version 2.7, certification number CC-1112-239140-2, meets the following certification criteria:

  • Criteria Successfully Demonstrated in Addition to Security and Privacy:
  • 170.304(a) CPOE
