The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) has given CCHIT Certified status to Siemens Medical Solutions for its Soarian Clinicals V2.0C5 with Siemens Pharmacy and Med Administration Check V24.0. The commission said Soarian meets its inpatient EHR criteria, launched in 2007.
The clinical workflow solution passed inspection of 100 percent of a set of criteria for computerized physician order entry (CPOE) and electronic medication administration record (eMAR). The commission said it focused certification testing on these areas first because they have the lowest rate of adoption in hospitals but are thought to offer the highest value for improvement of care.
The CCHIT Certified mark provides the first consensus-based, U.S. government-recognized benchmark for inpatient EHR products.
