September 11, 2014 — Future Health’s, SmartCloud/SmartServer 3.0 has achieved ONC HIT 2014 Edition Complete EHR certification, which designates that the software is capable of supporting Eligible Providers with meeting the Stage 1 and Stage 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
SmartCloud/SmartServer 3.0 was certified on Aug. 11 by ICSA Labs, an Office of the National Coordinator-Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) and is compliant in accordance with applicable criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“With this certification, we believe our customers are well prepared to successfully demonstrate meaningful use as well to be connected to their local healthcare community through the functionality gained with patient portals and direct messaging,” Steven J. Kraus, DC, founder and CEO of Future Health, said. “With our built-in alerts and customizable practice guidelines all built in the cloud, users can look to achieve improved patient care.”
The ONC Certified Health Information Technology (HIT) program tests and certifies that HIT is capable of meeting the 2014 Edition criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The certifications include Complete EHRs, which meet all of the 2014 Edition criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology and EHR Modules, which meet one or more — but not all — of the criteria.
ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, offers vendor-neutral testing and certification. ONC HIT 2014 Edition Certification is granted to those technologies that are capable of meeting the more rigorous testing criteria developed to support providers and hospitals who wish to demonstrate Stage 2 meaningful use, which focuses on the capability of health IT to deliver higher-quality patient care and exchange clinical information securely.
