gGastro Receives ONC-ACB Certification by Drummond Group
gMed’s gGastro Officially Certified for Meaningful Use Stage 2
Weston, FL (October 23, 2013) – gMed’s gGastro has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. This EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“gMed is once again amongst the first companies to achieve full meaningful use certification. Many talented employees worked hard to meet all regulatory requirements with a user-friendly design. We realize many practices will be challenged to implement the new regulations and have prepared our team to help with the transition. We are committed to helping our clients drive value in the new healthcare system with meaningful use and beyond,” says Joe Rubinsztain, MD, CEO of gMed.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program 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.
gGastro, which met the requirements for Complete EHR Certification, is a fully integrated, specialty specific platform which includes EHR, Endoscopy Report Writing, Practice Management System and Patient Portal.
“Leveraging information technology for healthcare initiatives provides the opportunity to deliver a high-level quality of care and efficiency which essentially benefits and enhances the overall patient experience,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group Inc. “We have been testing software for more than a decade and will continue to provide our extensive experience testing and certifying complex systems for multiple industries, as well as ensuring interoperability and security remain key components in the growing healthcare industry.”
“This Complete EHR is 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department 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.”
