FollowMyHealth™ Patient Portal Receives Meaningful Use EHR Certification

CHICAGO, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Allscripts today announced that FollowMyHealth™ v2.0 has received 2014 Edition Modular EHR Certification – for both ambulatory and inpatient – from Drummond Group's ONC-ACB program, and is therefore considered compliant with the applicable criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

FollowMyHealth is a patient engagement solution that combines the value of a personal health record, the power of a patient portal and the connectivity of a health information exchange (HIE). Based on the 2014 Edition Modular EHR Certification, FollowMyHealth is now officially recognized as satisfying the criteria necessary to enable providers to attest to the following Meaningful Use criteria: Patient Education; View, Download, Transmit (VDT); Secure Messaging (Ambulatory); Automated Numerator Recording and Quality Management System for eligible provider or hospital technology. Additional Software Used:  MedAllies Direct Solutions v1.0.

"Electronically engaging and communicating with patients is at the heart of Meaningful Use stage 2," said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "To achieve this, providers must involve their patients in their own care and enable them to become proactive participants on their healthcare team. With this certification, providers can rest assured they are using a solution that will help them achieve Meaningful Use, enhance patient care and lower costs."

Drummond Group's ONC-ACB certification program certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using certified EHR systems are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology – a key component of the federal government's push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.

With FollowMyHealth, patients can access and manage their health and wellness information in a secure, online environment – 24 hours a day/7 days a week, and download, fax or email records for the entire family from any computer, smartphone or tablet. In addition, patients can view test results, refill prescriptions, request appointments, pay bills, fill out forms before appointments and communicate with their doctors.
