AmericanEHR Partners is proud to announce that we have just incorporated Meaningful Use attestation data into our EHR product and Vendor profiles, and EHR comparison searches. We’ve also added an advanced Meaningful Use attestation search tool, allowing AmericanEHR members to see attestation data for 444 certified EHR products.
Through collaboration with the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), we are pulling our attestation data directly from HealthData.gov by means of an API (Application Programming Interface). As a result, AmericanEHR.com now displays the most current EHR attestation data available in an easy-to-read format that enables users to filter results by attestation year, state, specialty, program (Medicare or Medicaid), product setting (ambulatory or inpatient), provider type (EP or hospital), product classification (complete EHR or Modular EHR), or by specific EHR product.
This enhanced functionality enables providers to not only see how products are performing from a satisfaction perspective, but also which products are actually achieving Meaningful Use and helping their users obtain funding. This is valuable information for practices that hope to take advantage of EHR incentive programs as they adopt an EHR system for the first time, or for practices that are considering migration to a new EHR system. Current users of EHR systems can also monitor the success that their chosen product is having at achieving Meaningful Use in comparison to competitive products.
This is just one of many upcoming feature enhancements that we have planned for AmericanEHR.com in the coming months. As always, our goal is to provide providers, consultants, vendors, and policy makers with the most comprehensive and transparent data possible to aid with the selection, implementation, and optimization of healthcare technology.
