gloEMR is Certified!

The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) has begun posting names of certified electronic medical records/electronic health records (EMRs/EHRs) - and gloEMR is among them. Meaningful use certification is required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). On October 1, the CCHIT announced it had completed 33 certifications as an authorized certification testing body (ACTB) in just a little more than three weeks.The certifications include 19 complete EHRs (those that meet all of the 2011-2012 criteria), and 14 EHR modules (those that meet one or more criteria, but not all). Among the complete EHRs is gloEMR. In fact, gloEMR was one of the very first EMRs certified. Through the dashboard that is the heart of gloEMR, doctors can track patient location from admission to discharge, access and share daily schedules and calendars, order labs, refill prescriptions, and more. gloEMR is also unqiue in that it leverages several key Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office Word for text editing. Microsoft technology reduces implementation time and makes it easy to create practice-specific templates for routine encounters without expensive programming.
