EMR Receives Complete Certification

March 1, 2011 – The Mosaiq oncology electronic medical record (EMR), by Elekta, has received complete EMR certification. Complete EMR certification officially validates the software and enables eligible providers to qualify to demonstrate Stage 1 meaningful use under the HITECH Act.

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 EMR software is Stage 1 compliant with criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The complete certification makes it the first comprehensive oncology EMR to receive this important certification.

"Mosaiq is a popular solution in many of the world's leading cancer care facilities, so certification is a huge step for this software and puts our customers at the front of the line for incentive funds," said Todd Powell, executive vice president, Elekta Software. "We have worked to make Mosaiq not only the most comprehensive, interoperable and robust solution available, but also equipped it to perform functions that all modern EMRs should have to increase efficiency in patient care. Certification is additional evidence of these efforts."

Drummond Group's ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that EMRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EMR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus funds available under the HITECH Act upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology. Meaningful use is a key component of the federal government's push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EMRs.

The company also offers custom programs through its Strategiq consultative services to help clients prepare to demonstrate meaningful use.

"Whether an existing Mosaiq user seeking to qualify for incentives or a new customer wanting to adopt the Elekta EMR solution, Strategiq experts can conduct a thorough audit of a cancer center's operations, then provide an action plan specific to their needs," Powell said. "The oncology field requires specific workflows and processes unique to the profession, and it is important that sites – from practices with a single clinician to groups with more than 100 physicians – develop an implementation plan that ensures success."
