Netsmart TIER® CareRecord™ is Third Netsmart Post-Acute EHR to Attain Meaningful Use Stage 2 Certification
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. --(Business Wire)--
today announced it has attained ambulatory Complete EHR, 2014 Edition
(Meaningful Use Stage 2) certification for its TIER® version 8.0
Certification of the TIER CareRecord follows earlier Meaningful Use
Stage 2 complete certification of Netsmart's myAvatar™ and myEvolv™
Netsmart continued the development of the TIER CareRecord after its
acquisition of Lisle, Illinois-based Sequest Technologies, Inc. in
October 2011. Since that time, TIER's capabilities have expanded to
include enhanced e-prescribing, interoperability and consumer
connectivity capabilities. In addition, TIER now contains Guardiant™
decision support tools to assist organizations in proactively monitoring
the health of their EHR environment.
"We are committed to preparing our clients for the coordinated care,
pay-for-performance, outcomes-based environment that is now a reality,"
said Michael Valentine, chief executive officer, Netsmart. "Part of that
commitment is the ongoing investment of dollars and resources required
to provide our clients with CareRecords that go above and beyond the
basic clinical capabilities required by Meaningful Use Stage 2."
Stage 1 Complete and Modular Meaningful Use certification expired for
all vendors on December 31, 2013, so they must successfully pass 2014
certification requirements for their users to continue to qualify for
Meaningful Use incentive funds. In addition to myAvatar, myEvolv and
TIER, Netsmart is on schedule to attain Complete EHR, 2014 Edition
compliant certification for its CMHC/MIS and Insight™ CareRecords.
Behavioral health, addiction treatment, I/DD, child and family, public
health, and other health and human services providers are currently
eligible for Medicaid or Medicare Meaningful Use funds based on the
number of Eligible Professionals (EPs), such as physicians and nurse
practitioners, in their organizations.
Certification testing for myEvolv was conducted by Drummond Group Inc.,
one of the ONC-Authorized
Testing and Certification Bodies (ATCBs) for EHR certification named
by the Offce of the National Coordinator to provide Meaningful Use
certification for EHR systems and applications.
