HealthFusion® announced today that MediTouch EHR® (4.0), a 2014 Meaningful Use Complete EHR, has adopted and achieved certification for the latest version of the complete set of 64 approved Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs). In June 2013, MediTouch Technology was first certified as a Complete EHR that supports both Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use by the Drummond Group, as part of the Office of the National Coordinator - Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. All Eligible Professionals that want to qualify for funding next year under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), also known as the Meaningful Use program, must use an ONC-ACB 2014 certified version of EHR technology. This new recognition means that MediTouch EHR software is certified to support the latest version of the Meaningful Use CQMs in addition to all of the other functionalities required to meet the definition of a Complete EHR.
“Our goal has always been to incorporate the latest version of the Meaningful Use 2014 version of the Clinical Quality Measures. CMS has revised those CQMs several times and we felt it was important to offer the latest version of those standards before January 2014. Since MediTouch initially achieved complete certification in June of 2013, more than six months before the January 2014 deadline, it was important to seek this updated certification this month,” said Dr. Seth Flam, HealthFusion president and chief executive officer. “This updated certification is evidence of our continuing commitment to the Meaningful Use program. HealthFusion continues to be an industry leader with regard to the adoption of the most modern EHR software standards and workflows and this update will afford our users the benefit of using the best version of the Meaningful Use 2014 CQM standards.”
The MediTouch Complete EHR is 2014 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.
