Allscripts MyWay Qualifies for Funding Under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

23 Dec

Allscripts MyWay EHR version 9.0 recently received Complete EHR Ambulatory certification. This means that the software, an integrated electronic health records and practice management solution, now enables providers to meet the Stage One meaningful use measures that are required to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

“The certification of our MyWay EHR provides physicians in independent practice and small groups an electronic health record that is simple, easy to use and that works the way their practice works, while positioning them to qualify for federal incentives under ARRA,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts.

The software was tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) program. Their certification program tests and certifies EHRs to make sure that they fit the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, currently Kathleen Sebelius.

Healthcare providers who use the Allscripts EHR system are qualified to receive federal stimulus money once they demonstrate “meaningful use” of the technology.

Allscripts MyWay version 9.0 is currently available in two forms: an on-premise software solution or as a SaaS (Software as a Service), which is software deployed over the Internet.
