gloEMR Version 4.0, gloStream's Flagship Electronic Medical Record Solution, Receives 2007 CCHIT Certification
Date:7/17/2008

The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT®) today announced that gloStream's gloEMR version 4.0 is CCHIT Certified®, and meets the Commission's ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) criteria for 2007. By looking to products with the CCHIT Certified seal, physicians and other providers can reduce their risk in selecting an EHR product, allowing them to focus their evaluation on the special needs of their practices.

Bloomfield Hills, Mich. (PRWEB) July 17, 2008 -- The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT®) today announced that gloStream's gloEMR version 4.0 is CCHIT Certified®, and meets the Commission's ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) criteria for 2007. Ambulatory EHRs are designed for physician offices and clinics where most Americans get their healthcare. CCHIT -- an independent, nonprofit organization -- is the recognized certification body in the United States for certifying health information technology products.

In the second year of the program's operation, the criteria and testing have been significantly enhanced. The Commission added 96 criteria to the 151 original requirements from last year. As a CCHIT Certified product, gloEMR version 4.0 has been tested and passed inspection of 100 percent of a set of updated criteria for functionality, interoperability and security.

"For 2007, the Commission raised the bar from the previous year's criteria. Ambulatory EHRs now must include electronic prescribing, demonstrate an ability to receive lab results, and show enhanced patient safety, quality, and security features," said Mark Leavitt, M.D., Ph.D., chair, CCHIT. "Investment in 2007 certified ambulatory EHRs gives providers even more powerful tools to improve quality, safety and efficiency while protecting the privacy of health information."

The CCHIT Certified mark --- a "seal of approval" for EHR products --- provides the first consensus-based, government-recognized benchmark for ambulatory EHR products. By looking to products with the CCHIT Certified seal, physicians and other providers can reduce their risk in selecting an EHR product, allowing them to focus their evaluation on the special needs of their practices.

"gloStream is committed to ensuring that gloEMR continues to meet the evolving standards for CCHIT certification because it means we've met the highest standards for ease-of-use, functionality and security while also providing doctors with time savings, money savings and peace of mind," said Mike Sappington, gloStream's CEO. "Having now created solutions that are CCHIT certified products for CCHIT Ambulatory EHR 2006 and 2007, we look forward to developing the next generation of gloEMR, refining the product even further, and working towards 2008 certification."

CCHIT's certification compliance criteria and its design for a certification inspection process have been thoroughly researched, taking into account the state of the art of EHRs and available standards, and comparing certification processes in other industries and other countries. The inspection process is based on real-life medical scenarios designed to test products rigorously against the clinical needs of providers and the quality and safety needs of healthcare consumers and payers. One script, for example, recreates a scenario of an elderly man with poorly controlled diabetes, hypertension and other chronic conditions in order to test EHR functions such as potential adverse drug reactions, disease management and treatment plans.
