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.

The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
