HealthFusion’s MediTouch EHR Receives ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification
Designation Supports Achievement of Meaningful Use
Solana Beach, CA – November 2, 2010 – HealthFusion, a leading provider of Electronic Health Records (EHR) with its MediTouch® solution, has received Complete EHR certification by the Drummond Group, Inc. (DGI). This certification assures healthcare providers that MediTouch supports EHR “meaningful use” objectives and will help them qualify for Medicare and Medicaid cash bonuses.
DGI is one of three Authorized Testing and Certification Bodies (ATCB) authorized by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to review, test and certify EHRs. In order to become certified, HealthFusion passed a rigorous inspection of MediTouch’s integrated functionality, security, quality maintenance and reporting abilities.
Eligible Professionals using certified EHR/EMR systems are qualified to receive federal stimulus funds upon demonstrating meaningful use of their EHR technology. MediTouch EHR is now included on the list of certified electronic health record systems identified on the ONC’s Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL). Demonstrating meaningful use will enable healthcare providers using MediTouch to qualify for the $44,000 Medicare or $64,000 Medicaid cash incentives established in the 2009 Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
“This certification gives our customers the confidence of knowing that MediTouch meets the rigorous standards set forth by the government,” said Dr. Seth Flam, CEO and President of HealthFusion. “Our EHR system will not only enable eligible providers to qualify for tens of thousands of incentive dollars from the government, but more importantly, it will help them improve the quality of patient care and increase efficiencies in their practices.”
