Office Ally's Electronic Health Records Product Honored with "Gold" Status in Inaugural Health IT Quality Solutions Program
SAN ANTONIO --(Business Wire)--
Ally, the only organization in the country offering
healthcare providers a full suite of revenue-cycle management services,
has been certified as a "Gold" Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
Technology Vendor in the inaugural Health IT Quality Solutions™ program
sponsored by Quest Diagnostics. Office Ally is one of only a handful of
companies in the country to receive this high honor.
The Health IT Quality Solutions program is designed to help assure
physicians that they will receive a quality experience that meets their
clinical and business needs when they select a company with this "seal
of approval." The gold certification means that not only did Office Ally
meet stringent criteria for innovation, capacity and enhanced
implementation, but that the company's EHR product also provides
physicians advanced functionality and other benefits that contribute to
clinical and operational quality.
Office Ally's EHR product is fuly certified by the Certification
Commission for Health Information Technology and over the past two years
has been selected as a preferred EHR vendor for multiple regional
extension centers around the country including those in Los Angeles and
Orange (News - Alert) County, California, plus centers in Texas, Arizona, Colorado,
Iowa, Maryland and South Florida, among others.
"We are honored to be recognized by Quest Diagnostics for our innovation
and ongoing work in this important field," said Brian O'Neill, president
and CEO of Office Ally. "Electronic health records lead to improved
quality, safety, efficiency and access; and our EHR 24/7 product
provides a simple and very affordable way for providers to adopt EHRs
and receive incentive payments from the federal government."
Part of the economic stimulus package passed by Congress in 2009
provides incentive payments for Medicaid and Medicare providers that
adopt and use certified EHRs. There are also financial penalties for
Medicare providers who do not adopt a certified EHR by 2015. According
to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 55 percent of
physicians adopted an EHR in 2011.
