100% of RevolutionEHR Users Updated to ONC-ATCB Certified Complete EHR Version of Application
Madison, WI, July 5, 2011 – Health Innovation Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of web-based practice management and electronic health record systems for the optometric community, announced today that RevolutionEHR version 5.3.0 has been released into production, ensuring all RevolutionEHR doctors are using an ONC-ATCB certified complete EHR for demonstrating Meaningful Use and applying for 2011-2012 ARRA HITECH incentives.
“That’s one of the huge advantages our community realizes with our web-based EHR” said Scott Jens, OD, FAAO, CEO of RevolutionEHR. “Our doctors don’t have to subject themselves to the hassle and lost productivity that is inevitable with installing software, upgrading hardware or migrating data just to start working with a certified EHR. With this certification update, our doctors simply just log in to RevolutionEHR to begin working with a certified complete EHR and are on their way toward becoming Meaningful EHR Users. It’s really that simple.”
As a part of this latest update, RevolutionEHR has rolled out a Meaningful Use education program, designed by Dr. Jens, to help doctors achieve the 25 Meaningful Use criteria with RevolutionEHR and apply for 2011-2012 incentives. “This is what I am really excited about” said Dr. Jens, “that we can do this together as a community. As a user of RevolutionEHR, I also have the goal of attesting to Meaningful Use to receive incentives. I will be leading the effort for our users toward Meaningful Use and sharing the process with our user community. I hope each one will join me!”
“We are excited that RevolutionEHR has been completely certified. The fact that we get the certified version just by logging in makes the whole topic simpler for my practice.” commented Dr. Michael Walby of Perry, Florida. He also added, “I plan on attesting to Meaningful Use this year and appreciate RevolutionEHR’s assistance to make this easier for me.”
The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 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 is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives,” said Karen M. Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.
