CCHIT approves MedcomSoft?s ambulatory EHR
The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) has certified MedcomSoft's MedcomSoft Record UE, V 4.5 solution, and stating meets the Commission's ambulatory EHR criteria for 2007.

As a CCHIT-Certified product, MedcomSoft Record UE has been tested and passed inspection of a set of updated criteria for functionality, interoperability and security, according to the Atlanta-based company.

“For 2007, the Commission raised the bar from the previous year's criteria. Ambulatory EHRs now must include electronic prescribing, demonstrate an ability to receive lab results and show enhanced patient safety, quality and security features,” said Mark Leavitt, MD, PhD, chair of CCHIT.
