(July 25, 2012 Charlotte, NC) – Aym Technologies’ OnTarget Clinical 2.0 has received the federal government’s “meaningful use” stamp of approval by earning Complete EHR Ambulatory Certification. The “complete” certification officially deems the electronic health record (EHR) software capable of enabling providers to qualify for funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) – a key component of the push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.
OnTarget Clinical was tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) program and is 2011/2012 compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“OnTarget Clinical’s ‘complete’ certification validates that our software can help providers benefit from the electronic revolution in the healthcare industry. Providers can now leverage OnTarget Clinical to enhance productivity and make significant clinical improvements, while achieving meaningful use and qualifying for incentive funds under ARRA. We are proud to offer human services providers an integrated solution that can truly improve care in their communities,” says Lewis Quinn, CEO of Aym Technologies.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. Healthcare providers using the EHR systems of vendors certified as “complete” are then qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology.
OnTarget Clinical, which met the requirements for Complete EHR Ambulatory, helps human services providers realize substantial gains in both quality and efficiency. The software was designed by former behavioral healthcare professionals to incorporate industry best practice standards and deliver intuitive ease of use for the entire clinical team.
The software’s workflow is driven by a thorough understanding of clinical needs, industry requirements, and common sense approach to clinician’s needs. OnTarget Clinical liberates staff from administrative tedium and gives them valuable time to focus on their important purpose of delivering quality consumer care.
“The need to leverage information technology in the healthcare industry is huge – as the quality of care and efficiency benefits that come with computerization can really make a difference in the overall patient experience. We’re ready to help transform the industry by providing the sophisticated software testing services that ensure that vendors and hospitals are offering systems that are capable of meeting the meaningful use standards required to obtain incentive funds as well as the rich functionality required to move the clinical care needle forward,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group. “We have been testing software for more than a decade and are ready to leverage our extensive experience handling sophisticated systems in complex industries as well as dealing with complicated technical issues such as interoperability and security.”
This Complete EHR Ambulatory is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by Drummond Group, an ONC-ATCB approved to certify any complete or modular EHR both ambulatory and inpatient, in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary 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.
