Allscripts ePrescribe 17.1 receives ONC-ACB Certification by Drummond Group

Organization certifies Allscripts solution for Electronic Health Record (EHR) Modular in Ambulatory setting to meet Meaningful Use

CHICAGO, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) ePrescribe 17.1 has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program in accordance with Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services criteria.

ePrescribe is one of the most widely used electronic prescribing applications in the U.S and is a preferred platform even for providers who do not use an Allscripts electronic health record (EHR) solution. Use of ePrescribe can help improve the efficiency of the prescription process and provides tools to assist with medication compliance through patient adherence and patient assistance program capabilities. Importantly, ePrescribe provides tools to help providers improve patient safety through automatic drug interaction checking and dosage, adverse reaction, and duplicate therapy checks.

 "As one of the nation's largest electronic prescriptions providers, ePrescribe is a key and fundamental part of Allscripts comprehensive solutions offering," said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "Drummond's certification underscores the trust that nearly 100,000 physicians and prescribers across the country put in Allscripts ePrescribe to deliver critical patient prescription information."

ePrescribe is one of the first prescription applications to be certified for controlled substances electronic prescribing. It is a top-level certified electronic prescription application based on Surescripts certification standards, with few other applications achieving such certification.  

Allscripts ePrescribe meets Drummond Group's requirements for Modular EHR Ambulatory certification. Drummond Group's ONC-ACB certification program certifies which EHRs meet the technical standards necessary for eligible provider or hospital to achieve meaningful use. Healthcare providers using certified EHR systems are qualified to receive federal stimulus money if they demonstrate meaningful use of that certified EHR system. Meaningful use of technology is part of the federal government's push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by United States healthcare providers.

 "This EHR Module is 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONCACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments. Drummond Group is accredited by ANSI and approved by ONC for the ONC HIT Certification Program to certify: Complete EHR, EHR Module (all), and Certification of other types of HIT for which the Secretary has adopted certification criteria under Subpart C of 45 CFR."

Allscripts ePrescribe, Ambulatory Modular certified 10/25/13, Version 17.1, Certification ID Number No. 12052013‐2467‐1, Modules Tested: 170.314(a)(2, 6, 7, 10); 170.314(b)(3); 170.314(d)(1, 5, 6); 170.314(g)(1, 3, 4) No Clinical Quality Measures tested, No additional software used.

Price Transparency: 
Licensing and implementation of the functionality and content covered by this certification will require ongoing and/or one-time license and/or service fees covering the right to use the in-scope solutions, support, and requested standard implementation, integration, and consulting services.  Required connectivity for transmitting patient data will require one-time costs, ongoing service fees, and/or transaction-based fees. 

*A certification that is issued to an integrated bundle of EHR Modules shall be treated the same as a certification issued to a Complete EHR except that it must also indicate each EHR Module that comprises the bundle;
*A certification issued to a Complete EHR or EHR Module based on applicable certification criteria adopted by the ONC at subpart C of this part must be separate and distinct from any other certification(s) based on other criteria or requirements.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
As we approach the next @ThingsExpo, to be held June 9-11 at the Javits Center in New York, my thoughts naturally turn to the Internet of Things. The IoT is a leviathan—in the best possible sense of the term—that will sweep up most everything in the ocean of data and technology being created today and tomorrow. But rather than try to grasp all of its possible uses, for today I'm looking at “just” the Industrial Internet part. I just read a long paper co-authored by Tim Berners-Lee about the possibility of describing a “web science,” that is, discipline that combines the study involved ...
