iCare Becomes Industry’s First Enterprise Cloud EHR to be Certified for Inpatient Meaningful Use Stage 2
iCare hits historic milestone for Inpatient Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2 Certification; becomes the industry’s first unified cloud whole-hospital EHR for inpatient use and the industry’s first new enterprise EHR in the last 16 years; receives ONC-ACB Certification by Drummond Group
San Francisco, CA – February 18, 2015 – iCare, the Enterprise Cloud EHR company, today announced that the company’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program for Inpatient Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2. This milestone marks the industry’s first true cloud EHR to be certified for whole-hospital inpatient use – and the first new enterprise EHR in 16 years.
iCare is the only EHR built on a modern architecture including built-in big data capability. The use of newer technology plus its cloud delivery makes iCare the most advanced EHR available for inpatient use. Other enterprise EHR systems are built on outdated architectures that require large allocations of resources for implementation, customization, development and daily operations. These old client-server systems are costly, closed, and slow to innovate. With iCare, everything changes. iCare hospitals focus on patient care, not software.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program certifies that iCare meets the meaningful use criteria for eligible providers and hospital technology. iCare customers are now qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology – a key component of the federal government’s push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.
“Leveraging information technology for healthcare initiatives provides the opportunity to deliver a high-level quality of care and efficiency which essentially benefits and enhances the overall patient experience,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group Inc. “We have been testing software for more than a decade and will continue to provide our extensive experience testing and certifying complex systems for multiple industries, as well as ensuring interoperability and security remain key components in the growing healthcare industry.”
