Greenway's PrimeSUITE Receives 2014 ONC HIT Certification for 37 Criteria
CARROLLTON, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc., announced today that on Jan. 23, Greenway PrimeSUITE 2014 (17.0) was compliant with 29 additional ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as an EHR Module 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. CCHIT first certified PrimeSUITE 2014 for eight criteria on Jan. 15, bringing the total number of the solution's certified criteria to 37.
"We view this certification as validating Greenway's lead position among EHR providers dedicated to furthering the transition to value-based healthcare under meaningful use Stage 2," said Johnathan Samples, Greenway® executive vice president of research and development. "Greenway is now certified for all ONC 2014 Edition criteria available to us at this time, and we will continue to work as rapidly as possible toward full certification."
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).
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.
"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-2014-699072-2. 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.
