Date:7/7/2011

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Health IT Services Group (HITSG) announced today that its core product, Acumen nEHR, has surpassed 1,000 nephrology providers this month, continuing its growth as the largest Electronic Health Record (EHR) provider for the nephrology specialty.  Built by nephrologists for nephrologists, the Acumen nEHR enables all providers within a care team to access and share patient information, so that regardless of who treats the patient, care delivered at each stage is consistently based on real-time clinical data.

"Acumen's user growth is fueled by our continued efforts to work directly with nephrologists to deliver the most comprehensive and complete nephrology EHR tool in the healthcare industry," said Dana Hensley, President of Health IT Services Group. "We continue to forge the electronic health record path for renal care practitioners and serving the needs of over 1,000 providers is a major milestone."  

Acumen is the only nephrology-specific EHR that is certified by CCHIT® and ONC-ATCB, and now supports over 5,000 daily users in 32 states and provides real-time access for almost 2,000,000 patient records.

Providing anytime, anywhere access to patient data via the Internet, Acumen nEHR not only provides the latest clinical data, charts and patient information, but also ensures that the data is HIPAA compliant, meets all national standards and provides nephrologists with a real-time clinical information and meaningful use dashboard to assist in care decisions.  In December 2010, Acumen nEHR, version 6.0, was 2011/2012 ONC-ATCB Certified for meaningful use and is a CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR. In addition to receiving these prestigious industry certifications, the Acumen product received a five-star usability rating, the highest possible score that can be achieved.

The company also operates one of the nation's largest CMS-qualified reporting services for physicians who participate in the federal government's clinical quality reporting initiative, the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). Over 70 percent of all nephrologists in the U.S. who reported data via a registry in 2009 and 2010 used Acumen PQRS. In addition, HITSG manages the Fresenius Medical Care CKD registry, one of the largest repositories of chronic kidney disease clinical data in the world.
