Dec 18, 2012 - Orem, UTCorEMR receives official notification of ONC Stage 1 Meaningul use certification. The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) is part of the US Government Department of Health and Human Services. The department has outlined tests for Electronic Health Record products that qualify for “meaningful use.” This initiative is to encourage the use of Electronic Medical Record keeping in healthcare facilities throughout the country using certified and approved products. Software meeting the certification measure comply with standards for health information exchange and meaningful use. Certified software requires the use of RxNorm, LOINC, SNOWMED and ICD-9 codes.
CorEMR tested for full Ambulatory certification, Stage 1 Meaningful Use during the month of November. During the 3 day test, a certified examiner evaluated the software compliance to the standard measures. Some were simple, such as reporting BMI, while others, like interoperability features, were much more complex.
CorEMR began in 2004 to provide correctional facilities with affordable electronic medical records. Our management team has 6 years of experience specifically in jail and prison EMR/EHR management and over 30 years of experience in software design.
