, a premier provider of revenue cycle management and analytics solutions, today announced that Origin’s EMRge 8.2 has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. This EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

"The government set a high bar for EHR products in this second phase of the EHR incentive program, and we are proud to be among the group of companies that have achieved certification for 2014 and Stage 2," says Tom Stampiglia, CEO of Origin. "We accomplished this through an unwavering commitment to usability and physician efficiency."

Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology – a key component of the federal government’s push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.

EMRge 8.2, which met the requirements for Complete EHR Ambulatory, is a certified and integrated application designed with a practice’s workflow in mind and covers virtually all practice management and clinical tasks.
