Dairyland Healthcare nabs CCHIT certification
The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) has certified Dairyland Healthcare Solutions' physician practice documentation (PPD), Version 9, stating the PPD meets the commission's ambulatory EHR criteria for 2007.

PPD provides the ability to electronically document patient encounters. The application enables users to document a patient’s visit, automating the tasks associated with charting patient exams and assessments, resulting in a secure EHR, the Glenwood, Minn.-based company said.

The CCHIT-Certified mark provides the first consensus-based, government-recognized benchmark for ambulatory EHR products, according to the commission.
