We are pleased to announce that Medisoft Clinical v17 (also known as Practice Partner) has earned certification as a "Complete" electronic health record (EHR) system. The software was certified by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®) as 2011/2012 compliant.

Medworks is a strong advocate of McKesson’s Medisoft Clinical EHR solution for reasons that include its ability to integrate seamlessly with Medisoft billing software, system usability and a consistent history of achieving CCHIT Certification. McKesson is one of very few EHR vendors that have stayed current with every round of CCHIT certification since its inception in 2006.

McKesson is proud of every CCHIT certification earned over the years as this symbolizes a commitment to valued customers through innovation. Achieving ONC-ATCB certification as a Complete EHR reflects a further commitment to support healthcare IT goals and to help customers achieve Meaningful Use. When evaluating EHRs, look for "Complete" systems only as systems not certified as "Complete" may have difficulty achieving Meaningful Use.

Success depends on more than just a certified EHR. Medworks can help you identify any needed workflow changes, develop a process to monitor progress, and help assure a smooth implementation. In the coming weeks, McKesson will conduct specialized training via webinars for customers seeking guidance in achieving full EHR adoption and the meaningful use objectives. Meanwhile, you can review Medisoft Clinical Product Mappings to the ARRA/HITECH Stage1 Meaningful Use Requirements for Eligible Providers.

Medworks extends a most sincere thank you for choosing (and considering) both Medworks and McKesson as your healthcare IT partner. We are excited about the opportunities ahead, and we will continue to work with you to tap the full potential of your EMR and enhance both the quality and efficiency of the care you deliver as well as the vitality of your practice.

The fine print: Medisoft Clinical v17 is now 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR on December 6, 2010, by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable certification criteria for eligible providers 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.
