Leading healthcare information technology provider, InteliChart, announced that its patient portal, InteliChart Patient Portal version 2.5, is now an ONC-certified Ambulatory EHR module after meeting 11 of the 2014 Edition’s criteria.
The designation indicates that InteliChart’s technology is authorized to help eligible healthcare organizations demonstrate that they are meaningfully using a certified electronic health record (EHR) and eventually qualify for incentive payments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The certification confirms that InteliChart’s patient portal, which includes a personal health record component, provides the capabilities, functionalities and security necessary for healthcare organizations to meet the requirements for both Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use.
