HIT Certification While Enabling DirectTrust Capability

November 27, 2018 | By Wendy Bartlett

InteliChart, a leading provider of patient engagement and HIE technology, announced that its patient portal, InteliChart Patient Portal version 2.5, has enhanced its ONC-certified EHRmodule by certifying for five additional modules of the 2014 Edition’s criteria in both the Inpatient and Ambulatory domains. The designation, which comes six months after the company’s initial 2014 certification, indicates that InteliChart’s technology is authorized to help eligible healthcare organizations demonstrate they are meaningfully using a certified electronic health record (EHR) and will qualify for incentive payments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The certification affirms that InteliChart’s Patient Portal, which includes InteliChart DIRECT Messaging, provides the capabilities, functionalities and security necessary for healthcare organizations to meet the requirements for both Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use. The utilization of InteliChart technologies will continue to broaden as healthcare organizations and HIT vendors seek solutions to fulfill today’s MU requirements, while providing the runway for more extensive capabilities such as information exchange, care coordination, and population health management.

InteliChart’s patient portal is now certified* for the following modular criteria:

170.314(b)(1) Transitions of care – Receive, display and incorporate transition of care/referral summaries

170.314(b)(2) Transitions of care – Create and transmit summary care records

170.314(e)(1) View, download, transmit to a third party

170.314(e)(2) Clinical summaries (Ambulatory domain)

InteliChart has again received certification for 170.314(g)(2) Automated measure calculation to meet standards tied to its new modules.

“In addition to extending our certifications, we have launched InteliChart DIRECT, which allows both patients and providers to securely send information through an accredited DirectTrust HISP (Health Information Service Provider), to both InteliChart and non-InteliChart users,” said Gary Hamilton, president and founder of InteliChart. “We have also certified for care coordination and care transitions, which will benefit our clients as they look beyond Meaningful Use Stage 2 to achieve future standards impacting medical homes and ACOs.”

InteliChart has broadened its previously obtained 2014 certifications for Ambulatory EHR modular criteria, to now include additional criteria in the Inpatient domain:

170.314(a) Clinical

170.314(a)(3) Demographics

170.314(a)(4) Vital signs, BMI and growth charts

170.314(a)(5) Problem list

170.314(a)(11) Smoking status

170.314(a)(13) Family health history

170.314(d) Privacy and security

170.314(d)(1) Authentication, access control, and authorization

170.314(d)(5) Automatic log-off
