ChartSpan Medical Technologies, Inc’s Chartspan 2.0,  has achieved ONC HIT 2014 Edition Modular EHR certification, which designates that the software is capable of supporting eligible providers and eligible hospitals  with meeting the Stage 1 and Stage 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  ChartSpan 2.0 was certified on November 16, 2015 by ICSA Labs, an Office of the National Coordinator-Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) and is compliant in accordance with applicable criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“Patient engagement is the single most difficult part of Meaningful Use attestation,” said ChartSpan Chief Executive Officer, Jon-Michial Carter. “ChartSpan’s patient engagement technology is delivering patient engagement rates 10x higher than our competitors. This designation from the ONC guarantees our clients the ability to use our products to attest for Meaningful Use.”

 

ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, offers vendor-neutral testing and certification.  2014 Edition ONC HIT Certification is granted to those technologies that are capable of meeting the more rigorous testing criteria developed to support providers and hospitals who wish to demonstrate Stage 2 meaningful use, which focuses on the capability of health IT to deliver higher quality patient care and exchange clinical information securely.

 

ChartSpan 2.0’s Ambulatory certification number is 150123R00..  ChartSpan 2.0’s Inpatient certification number is 150123R00. ONC HIT certification conferred by ICSA Labs does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

 

ChartSpan 2.0 meets the following certification criteria 170.314(e)(1), 170.314(e)(3), 1703.14(g)(1), and 170.314(g)(4).

The additional software relied upon to comply with one or more of the certification criteria include: ChartSpan Engage, Microsoft Excel, HIPS Direct, and Network Time Protocol Daemon.

There are no additional costs that an eligible provider, eligible hospital, or critical access hospital will incur to implement ChartSpan 2.0’s EHR modules in order to attempt to meet meaningful use objectives
