CHICAGO, Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX) dbMotion 5.0 has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. This EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“Managing transitions of care is an essential component to Meaningful Use Stage 2,” said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “dbMotion serves as the digital key to unlock the open exchange of critical patient information across disparate systems. With this certification, providers can rest assured they are using a solution that will help them and their communities achieve Meaningful Use Stage 2 while enhancing patient care and lower costs.”
Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology – a key component of the federal government’s push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.
Allscripts dbMotion 5.0, which met the requirements for both Modular Ambulatory and Modular Inpatient certification, provides a strategic platform for care coordination and population health management that integrates discrete patient data from diverse care settings, regardless of IT supplier, into a single patient record. It provides a longitudinal clinical data repository with semantically harmonized patient data, point of care workflow tools, a physician portal, population health tools and an analytics gateway. This reduces the cost of care delivery and enables better physician-to-physician care coordination.
“Leveraging information technology for healthcare initiatives provides the opportunity to deliver a high-level quality of care and efficiency which essentially benefits and enhances the overall patient experience,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group Inc. “We have been testing software for more than a decade and will continue to provide our extensive experience testing and certifying complex systems for multiple industries, as well as ensuring interoperability and security remain key components in the growing healthcare industry.”
“This EHR Module is 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.”
