The first round of certification by CCHIT is now complete with 22 EMR products making the cut. I could say a lot more about CCHIT and I’m sure you’ve read some of my previous thoughts on CCHIT Certification. However, at this point I think it’s important to wait and see what happens with certification. Also, I think it would be somewhat innapropriate to pollute a post about CCHIT certification with bad mouthing CCHIT certificiation.

So, congratulations is deserved by each of the following systems for being able to certify. That is NOT an easy task to do and certainly represents hours of time spent by each company to meet the criteria. I should also mention that there are a number of very fine quality EMR’s on the list. You can find them in between the Jabba the Hut EMR’s on the list.

* Allscripts (HealthMatics Electronic Health Record 2006)
* Allscripts (TouchWorks Electronic Health Record 10.1.1)
* Cerner Corporation (PowerChart 2005.02)
* Community Computer Service (MEDENT 16)
* Companion Technologies (Companion EMR v8.5)
* eClinicalWorks (eClinicalWorks Version 7.0 Release 2)
* Emdeon Practice Services (Intergy EHR v3.00)
* e-MDs (e-MDs Solution Series 6.1)
* Epic Systems (EpicCare Ambulatory EMR Spring 2006)
* GE Healthcare (Centricity EMR 2005 Version 6.0)
* iMedica Corporation (iMedica Patient Relationship Manager 2005, version 5.1)
* Infor-Med Corporation (Praxis Electronic Medical Records, version 3.4)
* JMJ Technologies (EncounterPRO EHR 5.0)
* LSS Data Systems (Medical and Practice Management Suite Client Server Version 5.5 (Service
Release 2.1))
* McKesson (Horizon Ambulatory Care Version 9.4)
* MCS-Medical Communication Systems (mMD.Net EHR 9.0.9)
* MedcomSoft (Record 2006 (V 3.0))
* Medical Informatics Engineering (WebChart 4.23)
* Misys Healthcare Systems (Misys EMR 8.0)
* NextGen Healthcare Information Systems (NextGen EMR 5.3)
* Nightingale Informatix Corporation (myNightingale Physician Workstation 5.1)
* Practice Partner (Patient Records 9)

The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology announced Monday that two more ambulatory electronic health-record products achieved certified status.

They are: iMedica Patient Relationship Manager 2005, version 5.1, by iMedica Corp. of Carrollton, Texas; and Praxis Electronic Medical Records, version 3.4 by Infor-Med of Woodland Hills, Calif. In addition, two products announced earlier as pre-market, conditionally certified, have now been fully certified. They are MEDENT 16 by Community Computer Service of Auburn, N.Y., and Medical and Practice Management Suite, Client Server Version 5.5, (Service Release 2.1) by LSS Data Systems of Eden Prairie, Minn. CCHIT certified the EHR component of the LSS product.

The Healthcare Blogosphere has really been moving a lot since I’ve been distracted with a few other projects. I also attribute my lack of posts to it being summer. Summer for me includes long vacations and more importantly, no school. Since I don’t have classes with internet I haven’t had as much time to post on the blog. My apologies because there have been a lot of important things going on. Hopefully I can catch up on a few of the things that I’ve missed during this time.

First, is that The Medical Blog Network is hosting the First-Ever Conference on Healthcare Blogging called Healthcare Blogging Summit 2006 in Washington, DC. I would certainly love to attend, but unfortunately, I’m afraid that DC is out of my budget at this time. I hope they do some online streaming of the program. At least a podcast or something. What about posting a video of the event on YouTube or Google Video? We’ll see what they’re able to come up with. If only I had the time and resources to attend. That would be a lot of fun. They seem to have a good list of people that are going to be there.

More posts to come soon!
