Meaningful Use Manager™ is ONC HIT 2014 Certified for All 29 Clinical Quality Measures

Iatric Systems, a comprehensive healthcare IT integration company, today announced that Meaningful Use Manager, VERSION 3.0 with support for Clinical Quality Measures, is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as an EHR Module on Nov. 12, 2013, and Dec. 6, 2013, by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable hospital certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

“Iatric Systems is committed to partnering with customers to help them achieve their Meaningful Use goals, and we are very proud to be one of a small number of vendors to have a technology that is 2014 certified for all 29 Clinical Quality Measures,” said Frank Fortner, President of Iatric Systems. “Our customers are very diverse, so we wanted to offer them the flexibility to choose the 16 measures that are best suited for them, so they can more easily attest for Meaningful Use in 2014 and beyond. With our certified Meaningful Use Manager and its Clinical Quality Measures dashboard for hospitals and eligible providers, they can do just that.”

The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2014 Edition criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology.

“CCHIT congratulates companies successfully achieving EHR technology certification,” said Alisa Ray, executive director, CCHIT. “These companies are now able to make their products available to providers wishing to adopt health IT to demonstrate meaningful use and earn federal incentives.”

Meaningful Use Manager with Clinical Quality Measures VERSION 3.0’s certification numbers are CC-2014-290560-11 and CC-2014-290560-12. ONC HIT certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
