The PatientTouch System is a mobile point-of-care platform that eliminates harm, reduces waste, and improves productivity for healthcare organizations seeking to maximize the value of their existing EHR technology while simultaneously preparing for the future of accountable care. The system pairs customized Apple® iPhone® 5 and iPod touch® hardware with software applications designed to improve clinician workflow, ensure accurate medication administration, and foster deeper care coordination and communication.
With the ONC 2014 Edition Modular EHR Certification announced today, the PatientTouch System is now officially recognized to specifically support hospitals ready to attest to the following Meaningful Use measures: electronic medication administration record (eMAR), as well as vital signs and body mass index. Additionally, the PatientTouch System is certified for the following criteria for hospital technology: automated numerator recording; safety-enhanced design; and quality management system.
"We plan to use the PatientTouch System's modular certification as part of our attestation for Meaningful Use Stage 2,' said
Certified modular EHRs enable providers and hospitals to attest to one or more Meaningful Use criteria and may augment other partial EHRs to allow for full attestation. As certification criteria continue to develop, many providers are looking to these modular EHRs, rather than complete solutions, to work in conjunction with legacy systems.
"The PatientTouch System's broad capabilities are aligned with the ONC's goal of transforming the nation's healthcare system by driving meaningful improvements in patient outcomes and care quality,' said
This EHR module is ONC 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by the
PatientTouch System, Certified 8/21/13, Version 3.2.2, Version 3.3, Certification ID Number: CC-2014-100085-1, No Clinical Quality Measures tested. Certified for eligible hospital setting only.
