Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc., announced today that Greenway PrimeSUITE 2014 (17.0) is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as an EHR Module on Jan. 15, 2013 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider 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).
“We believe this certification puts Greenway at the forefront of EHR companies helping providers achieve Meaningful Use Stage 2,” said Tee Green, Greenway® president and chief executive officer. “Just as Stage 1 helped drive innovation, Stage 2 incentives will spur even greater EHR adoption and support for the growing initiatives of coordinated care, consumerism and the evolution towards true value-based medicine in the United States. Greenway plans to achieve Complete EHR certification as soon as possible.”
The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that Complete 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 either eligible provider or hospital technology. Companies offering ONC HIT certified EHR modules may return to test additional ONC 2014 Edition criteria and certify their products as Complete EHRs later. ONC HIT certification updates will be available at http://www.cchit.org as they occur.
“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.”
Greenways PrimeSUITE 2014’s certification number is CC-2014-699072-1. 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.
Greenway PrimeSUITE 2014 meets the following certification criteria:
- 170.314(g)(3) Safety-enhanced design
- 170.314(g)(4) Quality management system
