Certified for all 64 Clinical Quality Measures
LOS ANGELES, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
MedInformatix, an innovator in radiology information systems (RIS)
electronic health records (EHR), and an established technology brand
known for providing real-time real-impact data and workflow EHR
solutions to the healthcare industry, announced today that its
award-winning Version 7.6 has received Stage 2 Meaningful Use
certification under guidelines established by the U.S. Department of
Health & Human Services. The system is certified as a Complete EHR
including all 64 clinical quality measures (CQM’s).
“We are thrilled to be among the first in our industry to achieve Stage
2 Meaningful Use certification,” said Tom McGonigle, Chief Executive
Officer of MedInformatix. “To obtain certification at this early stage
of the process speaks to our commitment in supporting our clients
through all stages of meaningful use. This also provides the maximum
amount of time for imaging centers still looking to begin Meaningful Use
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,
the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services 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.
