CHICAGO – December 15, 2010 – Allscripts MyWay EHR version 9.0 has received Complete EHR Ambulatory certification — deeming the Electronic Health Record (EHR) software capable of enabling providers to meet the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) program, the EHR software is 2011/2012 compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“The certification of our MyWay EHR provides physicians in independent practice and small groups an electronic health record that is simple, easy to use and that works the way their practice works, while positioning them to qualify for federal incentives under ARRA,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “Allscripts is committed to providing physicians and hospitals with the certified solutions they need to take full advantage of this important federal program, which we believe will ultimately lead to better health outcomes for all Americans.”
Drummond Group’s ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and 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.
Allscripts MyWay version 9.0, which met the requirements for a Complete EHR Ambulatory, is available as both a hosted SaaS (Software as a Service) and on-premise solution, and offers robust capabilities for electronic health as well as practice management and claims management. The solution is designed to help independent and smaller physician practices overcome cost and IT complexity barriers.
