EHR obtains 2015 Edition ONC Health IT Certification from ICSA Labs
SOMERSET, NJ–(Marketwired – Feb 21, 2017) – MTBC (
The 2015 Edition Certification Program supports a diverse health IT system, including but not limited to electronic health record (EHR) technology, and crosses the care continuum to include a broader range of care settings. Health IT certification criteria in the ONC Health IT 2015 Edition Certification Program enhance privacy and security capabilities, improve patient safety and interoperability and improve upon the reliability and transparency of certified Health IT. Health IT certified to the 2015 Edition certification criteria and associated standards and implementation specifications can be implemented by an eligible provider, eligible hospital, or Critical Access Hospital and may be used to demonstrate meaningful use or participate in other EHR Incentive Programs. talkEHR was certified on Feb 3, 2017 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 (HHS).
“talkEHR ‘breaks the mold’ in the EHR industry by melding the advanced functionality required under Meaningful Use Stage 3 with one of the most user-friendly interfaces available in the marketplace for leveraging and populating an EHR,” said Mahmud Haq, MTBC CEO. He continued, “We look forward to adding talkEHR to our highly ranked suite of fully integrated, web-based, clinical, practice management and revenue cycle management solutions.”
Adeel Sarwar, MTBC CTO stated, “talkEHR, which will be officially launched later this year, seamlessly incorporates all of the tools required to thrive under Meaningful Use Stage 3 and the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) into one integrated platform.” He further explained, “EHR users can also leverage MTBC’s integrated, full-service revenue cycle management solution at one of the lowest price points in the industry.”
