February 10th, 2012 – Modernizing Medicine announced today that EMA Version 3.0, is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR on February 10th, 2012 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
“Complete certification is a major milestone for our company. Dermatologists and Ophthalmologists using our product are already saving an hour a day. Now they can qualify for $44,000 over five years with $18,000 in government stimulus money this year alone, giving physicians a compelling reason to adopt EMA before Oct 1st, 2012.” says Daniel Cane, CEO.
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.
