Misys completes CMS-endorsed EMR quality testing
Misys Healthcare Systems on Wednesday announced that it is among the first electronic medical record (EMR) vendors in the nation to successfully complete testing status for Doctor's Office Quality-Information Technology (DOQ-IT), according to a release.

DOQ-IT recognized vendors are endorsed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the American Medical Association (AMA)/ Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement (Consortium). CMS, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, established the DOQ-IT initiative program to encourage physicians to adopt EHRs and, in turn, improve the quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare.

The latest release of Misys EMR 8.0 was designed to expand interoperability capabilities and support of healthcare communities by connecting physicians and patients through automated clinical and practice technology, Misys said.
