Netsmart Technologies is First Behavioral Healthcare Software Provider to Pass Final Rule ARRA Certification Tests
Date:10/12/2010

GREAT RIVER, N.Y. Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Netsmart Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of software and services for health and human services organizations, today announced that its Avatar™ 2011 electronic health record (EHR) software successfully completed 31 of the 45 ARRA certification tests earning a Certificate of EHR Compliance for 29 modules. Behavioral healthcare providers must use a fully ARRA-certified EHR to qualify for Medicaid and Medicare incentive payments for the "meaningful use" of EHR technology.

Netsmart is targeting December 2010 for successful completion of the remaining ARRA tests for Avatar 2011. Unlike preliminary certification, the Certificate of EHR Compliance level of certification assures that behavioral health provider organizations are using software that helps make them eligible for ARRA funding incentives based on the Final Rule issued July 13, 2010, by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Testing was conducted under Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records ONC-ATCB program. Drummond Group, Inc., is an Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) named by the Office of the National Coordinator to provide meaningful use certification for EHR systems and applications.

"Drummond Group has over ten years of software testing experience in several industries and we are pleased to bring that experience to the HIT marketplace. It is a privilege to carry out testing and certification in EHRs for HHS," said Rik Drummond, CEO, Drummond Group, Inc.

The successful tests for Avatar 2011 included passage of nine required security-related modules and other tests in such areas as computerized provider order entry, clinical decision support, medication management, Health Information Exchange (HIE) encryption, providing consumers timely access to information, and capturing vital signs and B
