Silk Information Systems's Silk V 4.2 Receives 08 CCHIT Certification
Date:3/17/2009

Software Complies with Updated Interoperability Requirements

WATKINSVILLE, Ga., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT(R)) today announced that Silk Information Systems' product Silk V 4.2 is a CCHIT Certified(R) 08 Ambulatory EHR, and meets the Certification Commission's electronic health record (EHR) criteria for office-based use. Ambulatory EHRs are designed for physician offices and clinics where most Americans get their healthcare. The Commission -- a private, nonprofit organization -- is the Recognized Certification Body in the United States for certifying health information technology products.

"Two key new areas of interoperability are required to achieve 08 certification," said Mark Leavitt, M.D., Ph.D., chair, CCHIT. "First, ambulatory EHRs must be capable of advanced electronic prescribing functions so physicians can qualify for bonuses under Medicare's new incentive program. Second, EHRs must be able to send and receive an electronic patient summary. These and other new criteria will ensure that certified health IT products help improve quality, safety and efficiency while protecting the privacy of health information."

In the third year of the program's operation, the criteria and testing have been significantly updated again to provide physicians with more assurance that certified products will meet their needs for functionality, interoperability and security. The Commission added 19 criteria to the 200 required in 2007. Those changes were focused on the ability to exchange patient information with other systems. A CCHIT Certified 08 Ambulatory EHR ensures:

  • Additional electronic prescribing features: access to the patient's medication history, formulary, and eligibility.
  • Better and safer medication dosing, adjusted for patient weight and other factors.
