March 7, 2011 – A medical office electronic medical record (EMR) has received Complete EHR Ambulatory certification. Medstreaming’s EMR enables providers to demonstrate stage 1 meaningful use and 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 software is stage 1-compliant for 2011/2012, in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“We are very proud that healthcare providers can now leverage our cloud-based Medical Office Suite to demonstrate stage 1 meaningful use and address the problems associated with medical data fragmentation between PACS and EMR systems,” said Wael Elseaidy, Medstreaming CEO.
The FDA-cleared software is one of the first and only integrated picture archiving and communications system (PACS) and EMR systems that provides a single back-end cloud database architecture.
“We are very impressed with the comprehensive nature of Medstreaming’s EMR package and how it integrates seamlessly into our network,” said Shawn Foley, CEO of Nevada Heart and Vascular. “By working directly on a single integrated EMR and PACS database, the technology allows much wider integration of all patient data, which supports a more robust continuum of patient care. The support from Medstreaming has been excellent as well and we look forward to our ongoing partnership.”
Medical Office for EMR is a comprehensive suite of offerings focused on enabling proactive patient care and increasing the efficiency of healthcare delivery. These include complete scheduling, provider dashboard and patient evaluation programs. Prescription and lab orders can be electronically sent while enabling an up-to-date database for each individual patient record. Patient reminders can be created based on diagnosis, medication, allergies, lab results and demographics. Quality assurance measures are found throughout the system, including the tracking of physician’s meaningful use measures and report generation.
Medical Office EMR is HIPAA-compliant, audits all user activity and tracks each user operation of patient information whether accessing, creating, updating or deleting. The system is highly interoperable and facilitates rapid communications either intra-clinical or inter-clinical with the referring physician.
