Electronic Health Record (EHR) software must be capable, efficient, accurate, and simple to use. Next generation EHR software must also be open, interoperable, customizable, and cloud-ready. ehr.NXT delivers complete, Meaningful-Use Certified EHR capability using modern technology and a standards-based architecture.
Key components of ehr.NXT include:
- FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources)
- Open interfaces
- Scalable, high-performance technology stack
- Cloud deployability
More recently we have achieved the complete EHR Meaningful Use Stage 2 Certification for both Ambulatory and Inpatient functionalities, adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
HealthCenter (HC) is a patient portal and personal health record (PHR) manager that puts health information in the hands of patients. Patients use HC to manage and control their health information. Health records can be electronically and securely exchanged with multiple providers and Health Information Exchanges and consolidated into a single patient record. Patients use HC to manage and control their health information from one easy-to-use online site. Providers use HC to increase patient engagement and to provide Meaningful Use-compliant patient portal access to health information.
More recently we have achieved the module EHR Meaningful Use Stage 2 Certification for both Ambulatory and Inpatient functionalities, adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
This project helped create services that support the transmission of Direct Secure Messages and the management of trusted relationships between senders and receivers. The messages are operated by our secure cloud, and there is no local software installation required. The services were built for performance, scalability, security and can seamless handle message traffic as it grows. The project continues to provide a secure standards-based interface that allows the easy integration of Direct Secure Messaging into usual workflow, as well as an easy connection to EHRs, patient portals, and other healthcare applications.
