The EMR received the certification from the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) for its outstanding performance in three key areas:
-- Functionality - based on a set of features that enhance usability.
-- Interoperability - that fosters seamless communication between additional sources of information.
-- Security - that ensures data is well-protected and private.
"We are very proud of the collaborative approach we took to developing this EMR application for our client and appreciate the independent seal of approval from CCHIT," said Andrew DeVoe, CEO of Apollo Health Street.
"This certification provides physician practices added assurance about the investment they are making in electronic health records. We're confident that this application will enhance the care they offer patients and carry them into the future as EMRs become an integral part of our nation's healthcare reform," continued DeVoe.
