First EHR Using the Carefluence OpenAPI for Interoperability Requirements to Achieve Modular Certification for Stage 3 of Meaningful Use

Company has achieved interoperability requirements for Stage 3 Meaningful Use utilizing ‘drop in’ FHIR application for certification.

Grand Blanc, MI, August 04, 2016 --(PR.com)-- ModuleMD WISE version 9.0 is the first EHR using the Carefluence OpenAPI product for interoperability requirements to achieve 2015 Edition Health IT Module Certification from the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC-Health IT). This certification positions all of ModueMD’s customers to attest for Stage 3 Meaningful Use with respect to interoperability requirements. Testing and certification was performed by Drummond Group LLC, which has been authorized by ONC to test software for compliance with the interoperability requirements of the Meaningful Use program using ONC’s 2015 Health IT Certification Criteria. Drummond’s stamp of approval designates that the software offers the functionality that facilitates uniform, standards-based health information exchange, supporting the effort for a nationwide interoperable health information infrastructure.

ModuleMD provides a complete EHR solution including practice management, electronic health records, revenue cycle management and patient engagement functionality for ambulatory care practices. "Our focus is simple. It’s always been about solutions, not only software. ModuleMD had embraced interoperability as its fundamental strategy in delivering solutions early on. This certification is a progressive step in the direction towards better patient care through enabling technology for data sharing with providers, healthcare institutions, healthcare applications and patients," states Lloyd Williams, COO, "By choosing to utilize the Carefluence OpenAPI platform as a drop-in FHIR stack, we were able to avoid significant time and costs associated with internal development of a custom open API."

When the Meaningful Use Stage 3 Final Rule was announced in October of 2015 ModuleMD employed Carefluence’s OpenAPI platform to demonstrate compliance with interoperability criteria for certification. Carefluence had developed an open API platform that could be deployed alongside existing EHRs-- providing functionality allowing open access to electronic health records and ensures modular certification. After integration with Carefluence’s OpenAPI platform, ModuleMD WISE, is now compliant with 2015 edition certification criteria for interoperability in the next stage of Meaningful Use and the Health Level 7 International (HL7) Fast Healthcare Interoperable Resources (FHIR) standard, which describes data formats and elements for easier exchange of health information across disparate IT systems.

This Health IT module is 2015 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
