MedInformatix Receives Stage 2 Meaningful Use Certification

MedInformatix RIS EHR Stage 2 Meaningful Use Certification
January 30, 2014 — MedInformatix’s radiology information system (RIS) with Complete electronic health records (EHR) Version 7.6 received Stage 2 Meaningful Use certification under guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). The system is certified as a Complete EHR, including all 64 clinical quality measures (CQM’s).
 
The certification comes after MedInformatix completed a rigorous certification process administered by Drummond Group, a designated Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB). Drummond works closely with healthcare software providers across the country to certify EHRs for use by medical practices and organizations looking to qualify for incentive funds under guidelines of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
 
The ARRA specifies that healthcare providers show they are using certified EHR technology in ‘meaningful’ ways that improve the quality, safety and efficiency of the nation’s healthcare system. In July 2010, HHS and the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services established three stages of Meaningful Use, outlining specific criteria for each stage and offering incentive payments for achieving them. Stage 1 of the process began in 2011 followed by Stage 2 in 2014. Stage 3 guidelines have yet to be determined. After 2015, healthcare providers not achieving Meaningful Use requirements will be subject to financial penalties, making 2014 the final year to qualify for incentive payments.
 
MedInformatix clients have been among the first medical practices and providers in the nation to collect Meaningful Use incentives. Through November 2013, MedInformatix clients who have implemented its certified solution have collected more than $42 million in incentive payments.
