INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iSALUS Healthcare™ announced today that OfficeEMR™ is certified as a Gold Health IT Quality Solution by Quest Diagnostics under its Health IT Quality Solutions™ Program (the "Program").
Quest Diagnostics created the Health IT Quality Solutions Program to work together with electronic health record (EHR) and other clinical technology vendors toward improved clinical and operational quality to the benefit of mutual customers. The Program has the goal of maximizing data quality and data and business process interoperability between Quest Diagnostics and select EHR solutions.
As a certified Health IT Quality Solution, iSALUS Healthcare and OfficeEMR has been deemed by Quest Diagnostics to meet or exceed advanced industry standards and provide a streamlined, interoperable solution with Quest Diagnostics regarding lab orders and results. The certification demonstrates iSALUS Healthcare's commitment to quality and leadership within the health IT industry.
"The Health IT Quality Solution Certification reaffirms our commitment to the customer as we continually enhance the end-user experience within OfficeEMR. Our cloud-based software cost effectively provides robust interoperability for physicians in order to improve a practice's workflow, enhance patient care and ultimately population health," said Michael Hall, chief executive officer and founder of iSALUS Healthcare.
To be eligible for the Program, an EHR solution must have an approved and commercially viable interface to Quest Diagnostics web services Data Exchange Network which processes both lab orders and results. An EHR solution can then qualify for one of three certifications -- Silver, Gold, or Platinum -- by meeting an increasingly stringent and comprehensive set of criteria related to EHR solution functional capabilities, implementation processes, and other mutually-beneficial business activity.
"Certified Vendors have clearly demonstrated their commitment to helping providers meet a growing set of challenges relating to information technology, regulatory requirements and industry demands," said Keith C. Drake, Ph.D. Quality Solutions Program Executive. Their focus on quality lab interoperability validates iSALUS Healthcare's leadership in the marketplace," he continued.
