Only a year ago we had one and now we have five so perhaps this gives some new meaning to the number of software applications out there for medical records. There’s many and maybe too many. BD
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS has named two more organizations as authorized testing and certification bodies.
They are ICSA Labs, Mechanicsburg, Pa., and SLI Global Solutions, Denver. Both organizations are now eligible to certify electronic health-record systems as well as modules of those systems as capable of letting a healthcare provider meet the meaningful-use criteria and qualify for IT incentive payments under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
