PIMSY Platinum 6.0 is 2014 - Edition ONC-ACB Meaningful Use Certified
The PIMSY team is delighted to announce that PIMSY Platinum 6.0 completed 2014-Edition Meaningful Use Certification on 11.6.14! After months of grueling work, we have achieved the goal we set out to accomplish for our clients over two years ago. This means that Eligible Professionals (EPs) can utilize PIMSY to attest to both Stage 1 and Stage 2 of Meaningful Use.
Meaningful Use is a grant program created as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This grant program was established to take the financial sting out of transitioning the American healthcare system to the use of an electronic health record (EHR). The grant money is awarded to the individual eligible professional (EP), which CMS classifies as an MD, DO or NP - someone who can prescribe.
"I couldn't be more proud of our team: every department assisted in achieving this monumental accomplishment. By providing our clients with 2014-Edition software, we're doing our part to move towards national interoperability, which means better client outcomes. Certified EHRs like PIMSY reduce treatment errors, improve medication safety, and help keep client data safe and HIPAA-secure," said PIMSY CEO Ian MacDonald.
"Investing in Meaningful Use was ultimately a commitment to our clients. We're very pleased to be taking this commitment to the next level by achieving 2014-Edition certification, and we're especially proud of the fact that we were able to accomplish this milestone and help meet the goals of our existing and potential clients all while moving the industry forward. I'm pleased that we kept this promise to our clients."
