In addition to the monetary incentives, the adoption of EHRs can improve quality of care, advance patient safety, increase customer satisfaction and enhance office efficiency for physician practices. Facilities and practices using a certified EHR may also experience increased profitability through reduced costs and increased revenue.

"Choosing to test with The Drummond Group made sense for Sequel Systems because the organization is an independent leader in testing methodologies and test process management," said Khurshid Mughal, CEO and President of Sequel Systems.  "Given the level of experience The Drummond Group has, it offers a greater level of confidence to our customers and partners that the SequelMed software meets the requirements as set forth by The Office of National Coordinator."

"Drummond Group has more than 10 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 Electronic Health Records for HHS," said Rik Drummond, CEO Drummond Group Inc.
