Get Real Health’s InstantPHR was awarded 2014 Edition Ambulatory and Inpatient Modular EHR ONC Health IT Certification from ICSA Labs on April 22, 2013. InstantPHR was developed for healthcare providers to deliver high quality patient care. The certification designates that the software is capable of supporting healthcare providers with Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use objectives and measures. Meaningful Use is a Federal program designed to promote the adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) in order to reduce costs and improve outcomes throughout the healthcare industry. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses a combination of financial incentives and penalties to encourage healthcare providers to comply with recommended standards. Meaningful Use requires the utilization of ONC Certified Health IT products.
According to the Modular EHR ONC Health IT Certification, InstantPHR met criteria to view, download, and transmit to a third party. It is also certified to provide secure messaging, patient-specific education resources, and automated numerator recording. Additionally, InstantPHR is certified for all relevant privacy and security criteria.
“The test we went through with ICSA Labs involved very rigorous and rigid procedures to demonstrate that our InstantPHR technology meets the ONC criteria and standards,” said Get Real Health co-founder and CEO Mark Heaney. “We certified for the patient-centric criteria within meaningful use, and showed how proficient our product is in facilitating the exchange of information between providers and their patients.”
ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, offers vendor-neutral testing and certification. “Attaining 2014 Edition ONC Health IT Certification is a significant achievement,” said Amit Trivedi, Program Manager for Healthcare at ICSA Labs. “Certification demonstrates commitment to improving the healthcare system, and supporting providers with the technology they need to deliver high quality patient care.”
