MediSYS EHR Elects CCHIT Comprehensive Certification
March 4, 2010…MediSYS announced today its plans to pursue the CCHIT Comprehensive Interim Final Rule Stage 1 for Electronic Health Records “meaningful use”. CCHIT, the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology, has provided the requirements that EHR applications must complete for eligible providers to receive stimulus monies as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Stage 1 Interim Final Rule (IFR).
This comprehensive certification program includes all components of previous CCHIT certifications as well as the requirements under the Stage 1 IFR. In addition, it contains all the components of their second, less complete CCHIT Modular program.
Currently MediSYS EHR certification is CCHIT 2008 and we are working closely with CCHIT to meet or exceed the criteria needed for “meaningful use”. MediSYS is pursuing the CCHIT Comprehensive IFR Stage 1 certification for MediSYS EHR. MediSYS feels that the expanded requirements and components for the comprehensive program will give providers an advantage over the minimum modular program.
The MediSYS EHR development team has already started working on incorporating the new requirements and as these components are completed, they are being released in software updates at no additional cost to MediSYS EHR clients who are under subscription. This upgraded comprehensive certification is the MediSYS EHR team’s highest priority until it’s completed.
