Prognosis Health Information Systems' ChartAccess 4.0 Receives ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification
HOUSTON, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Prognosis Health Information Systems announced today that ChartAccess 4.0 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 hospital 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).
"Prognosis Health Information Systems is pleased that ChartAccess 4.0 was in the first batch of products tested and designated as a certified EHR in accordance with the ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program. We believe that we can help our hospital clients achieve meaningful use and receive incentives for Stage 1 functionality – and ultimately help them leverage our technology to improve clinical care and the overall patient experience," says Ramsey Evans, CEO of Prognosis.
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.
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.
