ChartMaker® Receives 2014 ONC HIT Certification

STI Computer Services (STI) announced today that the ChartMaker® Medical Suite 5.1 is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as a Complete EHR on March 7, 2014 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

“At STI, we are proud to have achieved ONC 2014 certification. This allows our providers to continue to attest to CMS in order to receive incentive payments. However, this achievement is only one step along the path we have set for ourselves with many improvements to come. Our goal has been, and continues to be, to make our products a useful tool for enhancing patient care and a powerful, easy to use tool for the healthcare provider,” said president of STI, Ted Itzkowitz.

The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2014 Edition criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology.

“CCHIT congratulates companies successfully achieving EHR technology certification,” said Alisa Ray, executive director, CCHIT. “These companies are now able to make their products available to providers wishing to adopt health IT to demonstrate meaningful use and earn federal incentives.”

The ChartMaker® Medical Suite 5.1’s certification number is CC-2014-865040-1. ONC HIT certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
