APRIL 11, 2011 – Myca Health Inc. announced today that Hello Health, Version 3.3, its solution for primary care practice, is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as an EHR Module on March 24, 2011 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
“We are delighted that Hello Health has been certified as an EHR Module for meaningful use,” said Nathanial Findlay, founder and CEO of Myca Health. “We believe Hello Health is the only meaningful use-certified solution on the market that not only helps physicians qualify for federal incentives, but also creates a stable, recurring source of revenue for their practices. Hello Health has been designed to help doctors and their patients make the necessary transition to new technologies as compelling and valuable as possible, and it’s free to implement for qualifying practices.”
The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology. Companies offering ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certified EHR modules may return to test additional criteria and certify their products as Complete EHRs later. Companies certifying products early in the ONC-ATCB certification process must quickly adapt their products to meet the evolving nature of the NIST test procedures, particularly for electronic prescribing. ONC-ATCB product certification updates will be available at http://www.cchit.org as they occur.
“CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives,” said Karen M. Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.
The certification number for Hello Health Version 3.3 is CC-1112-195700-1. ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nor does it guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
