Streamline Healthcare Solutions SmartCare 5.0 Earns ONC Health IT Certification from Drummond Group LLC

KALAMAZOO, Mich.--()--Streamline’s SmartCare 5.0 has achieved Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC-Health IT) 2015 Edition Health IT Module Certification via Drummond Group LLC, an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) that has been empowered to test software for compliance with the requirements of the federal government’s program. The stamp of approval designates that the software offers the functionality that enables eligible providers and hospitals to meet Meaningful Use requirements, qualifying these organizations to receive payments under the ongoing EHR adoption program.

“This is just another recognition of our continued focus on building a single comprehensive system covering all levels of care and supporting all lines of business. We’re at the forefront of where the market is headed,” said Javed Husain, Co-CEO Streamline Healthcare Solutions.

"As we’ve said from the beginning, anytime, anywhere, anyone can have complete access to our system. SmartCare is not a bunch of disparate applications you hope work together. We have proven again that it’s not only the most user friendly, but also the most robust unified system on the market today,” said David Ryland, Co-CEO Streamline Healthcare Solutions.

To earn the certification, SmartCare 5.0 was tested to be in accordance with applicable standards and certification criteria put forth by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

With more than 15 years of testing experience across various industries, Drummond Group LLC (DG) brings a high level of technical expertise to this process. Its healthcare experience also runs deep, having certified hundreds of EHRs since becoming an ACB in 2010.

SmartCare 5.0, which met the requirements for (ONC-Health IT) 2015 Edition Health IT Module Certification, is currently the only completely web-based application to be in compliance of Health IT in the behavioral healthcare market.

The all-inclusive behavioral health system was built from the ground up for inpatient, outpatient, residential and managed care providers. SmartCare will continue to meet all Meaningful Use requirements and is dedicated to helping organizations improve the quality of patient care, maintain the privacy of patient health information, maximize clinical outcomes, while increase business efficiencies.

This Health IT Module is 2015 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
