"In October 2013, we committed to guaranteeing that our EHR would be certified as a 2014 Complete EHR by the end of 2013.  Today, we are delighted to announce that Practice Fusion's EHR Version 3.0 is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as a Complete EHR on December 19, 2013," said Ryan Howard, CEO and founder of Practice Fusion.

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.

"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."

Practice Fusion's EHR Version 3.0, which met the requirements for the 2014 Complete EHR certification, is a free, EHR system used by 100,000 monthly active users serving 80 million patients across the country.
