HCIT 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”.


     Drummond 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.” 


       This Complete EHR is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by Drummond Group, an ONC-ATCB approved to certify any complete or modular EHR both ambulatory and inpatient, in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments. Vendor name-HCIT, Date Certified-12/15/2011, Product Version - HCIT Ophthalmology Suite 6.1 Certification ID number -12152011-1439-6, Clinical Quality Measures Certified - NQF0013, NQF0024, NQF0028, NQF0038, NQF0041, NQF0059, NQF0061, NQF0064, NQF0421.
