Harmony Healthcare IT Offers EHR with ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification10.01.2010
Harmony Healthcare IT partners with Medical Informatics Engineering to offer an electronic health record solution to ambulatory practices nationwide. Medical Informatics Engineering announced today that WebChart EHR Version 5.1, is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR on September 30, 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).
WebChart is a cost effective, web-based EHR that can be implemented online easily and quickly, enabling physicians to get started on meaningful use immediately rather than waiting months to start a traditional, client server based implementation.
WebChart was awarded 5 Stars for usability by CCHIT as part of its 2011 Certification– the highest possible rating.
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.
The clinical quality measures to which WebChart has been certified include: NQF 0421, NQF 0013, NQF 0028, NQF 0041, NQF 0024, NQF 0038, NQF 0059, NQF 0064, and NQF 0061. WebChart EHR Version 5.1 is also certified in CCHIT’s separate and independently developed certification program. WebChart Version 5.1 is an ePrescribing conditionally CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR. MIE has certified its EHR technology in both programs to provide greater assurance to its customers
