BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — SuccessEHS’s SuccessEHS 7.0, as well as SuccessEHS’s MediaDent 9.0, have been tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. Both of these electronic health record (EHR) software products are compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“At SuccessEHS, we have always pledged to maintain the highest level of certification available in the marketplace,” says W. Sanders Pitman, General Manager of SuccessEHS. “This certification underscores our continued commitment to our customers and marks another milestone in our journey to strategically position our clients for success. We also understand that certification is only the first step; unlike many EHR vendors, we come alongside providers as a true technology partner with support, toolkits and services designed to help them reach their goals, so that they can focus on what matters—patient care.”
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.

Both products are 2014 compliant and were certified on Sept. 12, 2013, 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.
