ATLANTA, Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Benevis – a leading business support services company for healthcare practices – today announced the certification of its Boomerang electronic health records (EHR) system by the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. With the successful completion of testing and certification, the Boomerang EHR software is now compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
"Achieving 2014 Edition EHR certification and compliance has been a rigorous process – one we felt was important to further strengthen the quality of our EHR system, achieve meaningful use for our affiliate providers, and ultimately improve patient care," said Tom Nance, CEO of Benevis.
Boomerang, which met the requirements for EHR Modular (Ambulatory) certification, is an award-winning electronic dental records system that allows affiliate dentists to maintain and share data for improved clinical outcomes, audit dental records, and ensure clinical compliance in a secure environment. With this system, patients have the flexibility to be seen at any affiliated location, helping dental professionals save time and improve continuity of care.
Drummond Group's ONC-ACB certification program certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EHR systems can provide meaningful use data through the technology – a key component of the federal government's push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.
