Misys MyWay EHR solution receives 2007 CCHIT certification

Misys Healthcare Systems : 02 July, 2008  (Company News)
The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) has declared that Misys MyWay Version 2008 is CCHIT Certified, and meets the Commission’s ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) criteria for 2007.
Ambulatory EHRs are designed for physician offices and clinics where most Americans get their healthcare. CCHIT – an independent, non-profit organization – is the Recognized Certification Body in the USA for certifying health information technology products.

“Both Misys and the Commission are committed to improving Patient safety and enhancing operational efficiency through the use of EHRs. With CCHIT certification for Misys MyWay, we have taken another step to remove barriers to healthcare technology adoption,” said R L (Vern) Davenport, executive vice president and general manager of Misys Healthcare. “Misys is proud to provide physicians with Misys MyWay, which meets the Commission’s requirements as well as physicians needs.”

In the second year of the program’s operation, the criteria and testing have been significantly enhanced. The Commission added 96 criteria to the 151 original requirements from last year. As a CCHIT Certified product, Misys MyWay has been tested and passed inspection of 100 percent of a set of updated criteria for functionality, interoperability and security.

“For 2007, the Commission raised the bar from the previous year’s criteria. Ambulatory EHRs now must include electronic prescribing, demonstrate an ability to receive lab results, and show enhanced patient safety, quality, and security features,” said Mark Leavitt, MD, PhD, chair, CCHIT. “Investment in 2007 certified ambulatory EHRs gives providers even more powerful tools to improve quality, safety and efficiency while protecting the privacy of health information.”

The CCHIT Certified mark - a ‘seal of approval’ for EHR products - provides the first consensus-based, government-recognised benchmark for ambulatory EHR products. By looking to products with the CCHIT Certified seal, physicians and other providers can reduce their risk in selecting an EHR product, allowing them to focus their evaluation on the special needs of their practices.

CCHIT’s certification compliance criteria and its design for a certification inspection process have been thoroughly researched, taking into account the state of the art of EHRs and available standards, and comparing certification processes in other industries and other countries. The inspection process is based on real-life medical scenarios designed to test products rigorously against the clinical needs of providers and the quality and safety needs of healthcare consumers and payers. One script, for example, recreates a scenario of an elderly man with poorly controlled diabetes, hypertension and other chronic conditions in order to test EHR functions such as potential adverse drug reactions, disease management and treatment plans.

The Misys MyWay solution, available as both an on-demand and on-premise product, offers robust capabilities for electronic medical records (EMRs), Practice management and claims management. Misys MyWay is simple, complete and affordable, allowing physician practices to overcome barriers that often dissuade them from adoption. The removal of these barriers allows for EMRs to improve patient care through their implementation.
