ASHEVILLE, N.C. (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 07, 2018

Geriatric Practice Management, Corp., GEHRIMED
has achieved Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC-Health IT) 2015 Edition Health IT Module Certification via Drummond Group LLC, an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) that has been empowered to test software for compliance with the requirements of the federal government’s program. The stamp of approval designates that the software offers the functionality that enables eligible providers and hospitals to meet the requirements of various regulatory programs that require the use of certified EHR technology.

“Certification is incredibly important to us as an EHR vendor! Once you pass the testing, your product joins the ranks of all other Certified Technology providers. That reality makes the testing process challenging for software developers responsible for certification– they are participating in a very important procedure, the significance of which is lost with our customers. The Drummond Group seems to recognize the tensions that dynamic can create and organizes their procedures to simplify a complicated testing regimen,” Rod Baird, President, Geriatric Practice Management, Corp.

To earn the certification, GEHRIMED was tested to be in accordance with applicable standards and certification criteria put forth by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

With more than 15 years of testing experience across various industries, Drummond Group LLC (DG) brings a high level of technical expertise to this process. Its healthcare experience also runs deep, having certified hundreds of EHRs since becoming an ACB in 2010.

GEHRIMED, which met the requirements for the 2015 Health IT Module is the mobile EHR platform built specifically for — and by — long-term/post-acute care (LTPAC) practitioners. ONC-certified GEHRIMED was developed by leaders in long-term care who recognized that other EHR systems contain unnecessary features and require complicated workarounds. GEHRIMED’s features streamline data entry so practitioners can focus on providing care, not chasing paperwork or struggling with technology.

This Health IT Module is 2015 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria 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.
