CareCloud’s Cloud-based Electronic Health Record Achieves Certification for Stage 2 of Meaningful Use

CareCloud, the fastest-growing provider of cloud-based practice management, electronic health records (EHR), and medical billing software and services, today announced that its EHR solution, CareCloud Charts, was certified for Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2 on December 19, 2013 by Drummond Group, an Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB). CareCloud Charts is now compliant with ONC’s Complete EHR 2014 criteria, supporting both MU Stage 1 and Stage 2 measures and certified for use by eligible providers to qualify for EHR incentives.

CareCloud Charts, the industry's leading cloud-based EHR, helps doctors work smarter and faster while easily meeting the needs of a rapidly changing healthcare environment. Designed in concert with dozens of physicians and group practices, Charts features award-winning usability and integrates with CareCloud’s practice management and patient portal solutions to help physicians achieve higher productivity, greater profitability and better patient outcomes. Key features of Charts include:

  • Award-winning ease of use
  • Real-time patient flows
  • Rich patient summaries
  • Rapid charting capabilities
  • Intelligent task management
  • MU reporting
  • Practice management and patient portal integration

“We’re thrilled to have achieved 2014 Meaningful Use certification for CareCloud Charts,” said Albert Santalo, CareCloud CEO. “Being certified as a complete EHR solution underlines our dedication to provide office-based physicians with the best cloud-based solution that not only improves patient care, but also ensures qualification for federal incentive payments which have become increasingly critical to many physicians.”

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was designed to assure providers are properly trained and equipped to be meaningful users of Certified EHRs. The HITECH Act establishes incentive payments under Medicare and Medicaid programs for eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals that meaningfully use Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT). To receive an EHR incentive payment, providers have to show that they are “meaningfully using” their certified EHRs by meeting thresholds for a number of objectives. To meet the requirements of Meaningful Use Stage 2, providers must fulfill the required 17 Core Objectives including, electronic prescribing, clinical decision support and patient electronic access, along with 3 out of 6 available Menu Objectives, and 9 out of 64 clinical quality measures.

As a pioneer and innovator in cloud-based practice management, EHR, and revenue cycle management for medical practices, CareCloud delivers intuitive, easy-to-use software solutions that increase profitability and productivity. CareCloud’s platform powers over 4,000 providers in 48 states, supporting more than five million unique patients. The company’s award-winning platform also encourages greater patient engagement and care coordination, serving as the cornerstone of the company’s vision to be the industry’s single login for healthcare.

This Complete EHR is 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
