Medflow EHR Achieves ONC-ACB Certification by Drummond Group

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Medflow, Inc. today announced that Medflow Electronic Health Records v8.1 has been certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. By receiving the 2014 ONC HIT Certification, Medflow’s EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The significance of this milestone for the eye care community is that Medflow’s current and prospective customers can now have confidence that the EHR to which they have entrusted their practices will qualify for Meaningful Use Stages 1 and 2 and avoid penalties for non-compliance.

“This is a great day for our company and our customers,” commented Medflow President and Chief Executive Officer D. James Riggi.  “We realized how significant it was to get certified well before the beginning of 2014. We believe we are the first eye care specific EHR to become certified. It was a major challenge to effectively blend CQM aligned Clinical Decision Support into an eye care workflow.  We are proud to be the industry leader in our specialty segment!”

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 program to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.

The Medflow complete EHR 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.
