NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, announced today that NextGen Emergency Department Solution version 6.0 is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as an electronic health record (EHR) Module on March 7, 2014 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable Hospital certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and 2 Meaningful Use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
“Having achieved complete certification of NextGen Inpatient Clinicals last year, we are pleased to have achieved this 2014 certification for NextGen Emergency Department Solution as continued support to our customers and their focus on demonstrating Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use of certified EHR technology,” said Jonathan Isaacs, senior vice president and Hospital Division manager for NextGen Healthcare. “We believe this Modular certification underscores our commitment to providing clients with the best possible solutions to successfully address critical aspects of healthcare reform and meet Meaningful Use criteria.”
The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that EHRs meet all of the 2014 Edition 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 hospital technology. “CCHIT congratulates companies successfully achieving EHR technology certification,” said Alisa Ray, executive director, CCHIT.
“These companies are now able to make their products available to providers wishing to adopt health IT to demonstrate Meaningful Use and earn federal incentives.”
The certification number for NextGen Emergency Department Solution version 6.0 is CC-2014-345777- 10. ONC HIT certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
