DR Systems Receives Ambulatory Meaningful Use Certification

DR Systems Receives Ambulatory Meaningful Use Certification

February 16, 2012 — DR Systems, the 2011 KLAS No. 1 overall ranked picture archive and communications system (PACS) vendor, announced that its cloud-based e|HR Meaningful Use for Medical Imaging solution has received certification as a complete ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) from InfoGard, an authorized testing and certification body of the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC-ATCB).

DR Systems’ EHR is 2011/2012 compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Certification is the official designation necessary for the EHR to enable providers to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Radiologists and their practices can receive federal bonus payments of up to $44,000 per radiologist by implementing the system to comply with meaningful use requirements.

An estimated 90 percent of radiologists are eligible for radiology incentive payments from the CMS, according to the American College of Radiology. Radiologists will have to qualify before this October to earn the full $44,000. Failure to comply with meaningful use requirements will subject radiologists and others to future financial penalties.

“An analysis of meaningful-use requirements shows that the best option for radiologists is clear: a cloud-based, vendor-neutral, imaging-centric, complete ambulatory EHR that can aggregate data from patients and upstream systems like a PACS, RIS, or HIS,” said radiologist Murray Reicher, M.D., FACR, DR Systems co-founder and chairman.
