EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems, Inc. Receives ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification
Bonita Springs, FL –(Feb 18, 2011) – EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems, Inc. (EyeMD EMR), a leading provider of Electronic Medical Records software designed specifically for the Ophthalmology Specialty, announced today that EyeMD EMR was certified as a Complete EHR on February 17, 2011 by Drummond Group Inc., an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“Certification for a specialty EMR has always been a challenge,” said Abdiel Marin, President of EyeMD EMR. “We’ve always wanted a certification path that demonstrated our dedication and ability to provide our ophthalmic user base with sustainable medical record technology that will stand the test of time, but previously offered certification paths did not have much consideration for the needs of Ophthalmology. We applaud the efforts of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and all other organizations involved that helped create a certification path that both gave confidence in our technology, and made minimal impacts to the flow and efficiency of an ophthalmic visit.”
The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs reliably meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria, and EHR Modules reliably 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. ONC-ATCB certification is needed to qualify providers for government incentives, and to help providers satisfy meaningful use requirements.
