Health IT Services Group's Acumen EHR, version 6.0, is 2011/2012 compliant, has secured a Complete EHR certification by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT), an ONC-ATCB.
The certification was in accordance with the applicable Eligible Provider 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).
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 chairperson Karen Bell said that CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer the products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives.
