Harris Corporation Patient Portal Certification Helps Health Systems Meet Meaningful Use Requirements

Harris Corporation’s FusionFX® Patient Portal has been certified to enable health system customers to meet important Meaningful Use requirements and qualify for related government funding.

The Patient Portal was certified by ICSA Labs, a certification body authorized by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Office of the Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The 2014 Edition Modular Ambulatory and Inpatient Certifications designate that the Harris Patient Portal can support healthcare providers with the Meaningful Use measures required for health systems to qualify for Medicare and Medicaid funding. It is not an endorsement by HHS.

“The certification enables our customers to demonstrate Meaningful Use and engage their patients more deeply in care while exceeding national standards,” said Vishal Agrawal, M.D., president, Harris Healthcare Solutions. “Our goal is to help our customers set the example for how technology can make healthcare simpler and more collaborative for the care team and their patients.”

The Patient Portal is a web-based, interactive system that allows patients and healthcare providers to better manage health care. Patients can securely communicate with their care team online, see test results, renew prescriptions and make appointments. Healthcare professionals can provide a simple, unified interface for their patients, irrespective of the number of electronic health record (EHR) systems deployed across their community.

A nationally recognized leader in healthcare IT integration, Harris offers a full range of interoperability solutions, including IT infrastructure and management, clinical workflow and analytics, health information exchange, and imaging. Harris solutions improve healthcare quality, safety, efficiency, cost and outcomes by ensuring that the right information travels, with security and privacy to the right location, at the right time, on the right device, at the point of care.
