‘Easy Billing Systems, 12/18/2014, MDChartSoft Version 3.0, Certification ID Number : 12182014-2484-5’

On December 18, 2014 - EBS Medical Chart Solutions received the federal government's Meaningful Use stamp of approval by earning Complete EHR Ambulatory certification. The designation officially deems the electronic health record (EHR) software capable of enabling providers to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program, the EHR software is 2014 compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

"The certification validates that our software can help providers take part in the electronic revolution that is reverberating across the healthcare industry! Healthcare providers can now leverage our software to not only make significant care improvements, but to also achieve Meaningful Use and qualify for incentive funds under ARRA. We are proud to offer providers the opportunity to truly improve care in their communities," says Curtis Kim.

Drummond Group's ONC-ACB 2014 certification program tests and certifies that EHRs meet the Meaningful Use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology - a key component of the federal government's push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.

EBS Medical Chart Solutions, which met the requirements for complete certification, is one of the few charting software to integrate a realistic approach to mimicking a physician¡¯s actual charting template.

"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."
