Receives “Complete EHR” Certification by Drummond Group
Enables Ophthalmologists to achieve
“Meaningful Use” measures set forth by CMS
OWINGS MILLS, MD, December 21, 2011 - HCIT Ophthalmology Suite,
Version 6.1 has received the federal government’s “Meaningful Use” stamp
of approval by earning the “Complete EHR – Ambulatory” Certification.
This designation officially deems the HCIT electronic health record (EHR)
software capable of enabling providers to qualify for funding under the
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Tested and certified under the
Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator
Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) program, the EHR
software is 2011/2012 compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by
the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“This is an important milestone for our
clients and for our company. This certification validates that our HCIT
Ophthalmology Suite, Version 6.1 software can help providers take part in the
electronic revolution that is reverberating across the healthcare
industry. Healthcare providers can now
leverage our software to not only make significant care improvements but to
also achieve meaningful use and qualify for incentive funds under ARRA, says
Michael Buhler, President and CEO”.
Group’s ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and 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.
“The need to leverage information technology
in the healthcare industry is huge – as the quality of care and efficiency
benefits that come with computerization can really make a difference in the
overall patient experience. We’re ready to help transform the industry by
providing the sophisticated software testing services that ensure that
vendors and hospitals are offering systems that are capable of meeting the
meaningful use standards required to obtain incentive funds as well as the
rich functionality required to move the clinical care needle forward,” says
Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group. “We have been testing software for
more than a decade and are ready to leverage our extensive experience handling
sophisticated systems in complex industries as well as dealing with
complicated technical issues such as interoperability and security.”

2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by Drummond Group, an ONC-ATCB
