Certified EHR Equips Local Health Departments for Healthcare’s Broad-Based Future

Netsmart today announced that it has attained ambulatory Complete EHR, 2014 Edition (Meaningful Use Stage 2) certification for its Insight™ Version 8 public health software.

Local health departments using a certified EHR (electronic health record) and meeting other criteria can qualify for Meaningful Use incentive funding under the HITECH Act portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Public health organizations are currently eligible for Medicaid or Medicare Meaningful Use funds under the HITECH Act based on the number of Eligible Professionals (EPs), such as physicians and nurse practitioners, in their organizations.

Netsmart’s Insight CareRecord™ (EHR) is designed specifically for local health departments, which often serve as the “front door” for people seeking basic healthcare assistance. Insight public health software includes a full range of clinic management, billing, revenue cycle management and case management capabilities needed to provide both basic services and comprehensive population health management and wellness programs. Insight provides a comprehensive, single patient view across a variety of public health programs, including communicable diseases, family and child health services, as well as supporting state and national reporting requirements.

Insight also has the robust infrastructure to fully support future health information exchange (HIE) relationships between local health departments, state agencies, local/regional providers, patients and families.

“Local and state health departments across the nation rely on Netsmart as their knowledge and technology partner to help them provide high quality services with maximum efficiency,” said Michael Valentine, chief executive officer, Netsmart. “Attaining ONC2014 Certification is just one aspect of that commitment, but a significant one given the impact Meaningful Use funds can have in helping our public health clients achieve their ultimate goals of providing truly coordinated care.”

Certification of the Insight CareRecord follows earlier Meaningful Use Stage 2 complete certification of Netsmart’s myAvatar™, myEvolv™ and TIER® CareRecords. Combining the functionality of both an EHR and EMR (electronic medical record), Netsmart CareRecords lead the health and human services community in functionality, reliability, and ease of use.

Certification testing for Insight was conducted by Drummond Group Inc., one of the ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Bodies (ATCBs) for EHR certification named by the Office of the National Coordinator to provide Meaningful Use certification for EHR systems and applications.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
