Costs and Limitations
GetWell Inpatient PLS 7.0 has met the requirements for ONC-ACB 2014 Edition Modular Inpatient EHR Certification which engages patients in their care and streamlines clinical workflows in the acute setting, leading to improved outcomes in patient satisfaction, health and safety, and finance and operations. The IPC solution receives both manual and automatically generated orders from an EHR and assigns relevant, patient-specific education to enable patients and their families to take a more active role in their health. Hospitals can include GetWellNetwork’s Modular Certification in their meaningful use attestation to meet or help meet requirements for patient-specific Education.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, health care providers using the technology 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. health care providers.
To learn more about meaningful use and how GetWellNetwork can help hospitals and providers meet the Meaningful Use requirements for patient specific education, please contact your GetWellNetwork representative.
