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.
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
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
“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.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
