AdvancedMD EHR Receives ONC-ACB Certification by Drummond Group

Salt Lake City, UT – (September 17, 2014) – ADP® AdvancedMD a leader in all-in-one, cloud electronic health records(EHR), practice management, medical scheduling, medical billing services as well as a pioneer of big data reporting and business intelligence for smaller medical practices, today announced it has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. ADP AdvancedMD EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

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 the EHR systems of certified vendors 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.

Maintaining compliance in the ever-changing regulatory landscape is increasingly demanding for independent medical practices. As one of the earliest providers of true software-as-a-service (SaaS) medical office software, ADP AdvancedMD offers speed and savings related to updates and upgrades with all users so they are automatically and continuously upgraded to the latest version as part of their monthly subscription.

ADP AdvancedMD EHR, version 2014.1, which meets the requirements for a Complete EHR, provides the independent physician with clinical solutions to manage patient care from anywhere with improved workflow efficiency and operational control. Flexible and customizable patient encounter documentation can be configured to complement broad work style and clinical approaches.

“This certification wasn’t about getting a checkbox or a listing on the ONC website as much as we felt it an opportunity to help our independent physician customers engage in the benefits of MU2,” said Raul Villar, president, ADP AdvancedMD. “The additions we’ve made to our product suite will help propel independent physicians into the next generation of healthcare IT in a way that previously was unavailable to them. We are proud to be the engine to empower that transition and transformation for our customers. We see this as the beginning, not the finish line.”

This Complete EHR is 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments. As a cloud technology, ADP AdvancedMD is an all-inclusive product and service. There is a one-time setup fee that covers the implementation and training. The monthly service fee is comprehensive and there are no additional costs that an eligible provider would pay to implement for the purposes of achieving meaningful use. Interface development, configuration, or other required patient services might require additional fees.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
