HealthFusion® announced today that MediTouch EHR® (4.0), the 2014 Meaningful Use version of its industry leading health record software, has been tested and certified as a Complete EHR that supports both Stage 1 and measures. MediTouch 2014 Technology was certificated by the Drummond Group as part of the Office of the National Coordinator - Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. All Eligible Professionals that want to qualify for funding next year under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) also known as the Meaningful Use program must use an ONC-ACB 2014 certified version of EHR technology. This recognition means that MediTouch EHR software already has all of the functionality that Eligible Professionals require for 2014 and that the system does not need any additional testing or certification.
“This complete certification is evidence of our continuing commitment to the program. The Stage 2 Meaningful Use program is technically more complex than the first stage, yet we have achieved this complete certification more than six months before the January 2014 deadline,” said Dr. Seth Flam, HealthFusion® president and chief executive officer. “As one of just five pure ambulatory EHR companies to achieve this certification, HealthFusion® continues to be an industry leader with regard to the adoption of the most modern standards and workflows. This early adoption will afford our users the benefit of a longer lead-time to prepare for immediate success in the next stage of Meaningful Use. In addition, I am confident we are creating the industry's best Stage 2 EHR user experience and by utilizing our EHR Data Import Wizard™, many providers that use older technology will be able to efficiently convert to the MediTouch cloud platform.”
