NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Recombinant Data Corp. announced today that its Selectrus Meaningful Use Registry (Version 1.0) is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as an EHR Module on June 30, 2011 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).
“Recombinant is very proud to have received certification for the Meaningful Use Registry module of our Selectrus Performance Analytics Suite,” said Peter Emerson, Recombinant’s Chief Executive Officer. “Calculating clinical quality measures is one of the more challenging elements of the MU requirements. That is especially true for organizations that need to integrate data from multiple EHRs for Meaningful Use measures, or with a clinical data warehouse infrastructure for quality reporting. Recombinant’s Meaningful Use Registry solves that problem, and we believe certification of the Meaningful Use Registry enables provider groups to accelerate their path to overall certification and receiving Phase One incentive payments.”
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.
The certification number for Recombinant’s Meaningful Use Registry, Version 1.0 is CC-1112-714920-1. ONC-ATCB 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.
