Pittsburgh, PA–January 07, 2019–Net Health, the leader in software solutions for specialized outpatient care, is pleased to announce that WoundExpert® version 7.0 has achieved Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC-Health IT) 2015 Edition Health IT Module Certification via Drummond Group LLC, an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) that has been empowered to test software for compliance with the requirements of the federal government’s program. The stamp of approval designates that the software offers the functionality that enables eligible clinicians and hospitals to meet the requirements of various regulatory programs that require use of certified EHR technology.
Christopher Hayes, Chief Technology Officer at Net Health, explains, “It’s imperative for our clients’ success that our software solutions adhere to industry standards for compliance. This 2015 Edition certification represents a dependable and reputable public benchmark that WoundExpert® continues to serve clients with the ONC’s latest privacy and security requirements and furthers interoperability with high-quality data exchange.”
To earn the certification, WoundExpert® was tested to be in accordance with applicable standards and certification criteria put forth by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
WoundExpert® provides clients who are designated as “eligible clinicians” by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) the tools needed to participate in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2019 performance period. Net Health’s cornerstone of success is to provide solutions that allow clients to confidently focus on treating their patients. In support of that goal, this 2015 Edition certification highlights improved interoperability, driving better coordination of care for patients throughout the continuum, and facilitates increased patient engagement through access to their health information via a revamped Patient Portal.
Hayes concludes, “The level of focus and perfection required for any solution to achieve 2015 Edition certification was raised to a level unlike the prior two certifications—and our team delivered. Current compliance trends, like giving patients quick access to their data to help paint a full picture of their healthcare, are exciting enhancements to deliver.”
This Health IT module is 2015 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.
