GE Healthcare today announced that Centricity Practice Solution 12.0 and Centricity EMR 9.8 have been certified as solutions that eligible healthcare professionals can use to attest for the Meaningful Use 2014 measures.

Under the HITECH Act of 2009, providers demonstrating meaningful use of a certified electronic health record (EHR) solution can receive financial incentives from the Medicare and Medicaid programs. To date, more than 12,170 Eligible Professionals (EPs) have successfully attested for Meaningful Use through GE Centricity Solutions.

“GE Healthcare was a great partner in helping us attest for Meaningful Use Stage 1,” said Tracie Keopplin, Physicians Medical Center, McMinnville, OR. “We look forward to implementing their 2014 Edition certified product, which we will use for Meaningful Use Stage 2. We expect that this will enable us to further enhance the coordination of care across our community.”

Centricity Practice Solution 12.0 and Centricity EMR 9.8 are compliant with the Office of National Coordinator (ONC) 2014 Edition criteria. In accordance with the applicable Eligible Professional certification criteria, adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Centricity Practice Solution 12.0 received certifications for both Complete and Modular EHR on 11/27/2013 and Centricity EMR 9.8 received certifications for Complete EHR on 11/27/2013 and Modular EHR on 12/2/2013 from the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC Authorized Certification Body (ACB). The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and Stage 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible professionals and hospitals for Medicare and Medicaid HIT incentive payments.

GE Healthcare certified EHR solutions for EPs are used across a wide range of healthcare delivery organizations, from small and large physician practices, to Federally Qualified Health Centers and Community Health Centers, to multi-specialty clinics with hundreds of providers.

“We are thrilled to achieve ONC HIT Certification supporting Meaningful Use 2014 measures, and we look forward to seeing our customers use Centricity Practice Solution and Centricity EMR to successfully attest in the coming year,” said Jan De Witte, President and CEO, GE Healthcare IT and Performance Solutions. “ONC HIT 2014 certification should help our customers recoup a portion of the financial investment they made implementing EMRs over the past decade. More importantly, we expect our ONC HIT 2014 certification to benefit patients by offering them enhanced access to their health information, helping to protect privacy, and enabling better sharing of health information to improve care coordination.”
