GEHRIMED is now certified for use by LTC physicians and practices to demonstrate Meaningful Use Stage 2 to qualify for EHR incentives.
ASHEVILLE, NC – February 14th, 2014 – GEHRIMED, a leading electronic health record solution engineered to meet the specific needs of providers serving the long-term and sub-acute care environments, announced today that its EHR has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. This EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“We are incredibly excited to bring this world-class EHR solution to Long Term Care physicians, clinicians and practices”, said Rod Baird, President of GEHRIMED. “To my knowledge, no other existing EHR software written for LTC physicians is currently ONC Stage 2 Certified. Many other products still treat physicians as data entry technicians. Our goal has always been to bring a world class EHR to this setting that is easy to use and helps physicians and practices better serve their patients”, added Baird.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program 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.
This Complete EHR is 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department 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.
