GE Healthcare EMR certified under ONC's latest health IT product criteria

GE Healthcare's Centricity Practice Solution EMR and Centricity EMR achieved certification under ONC's 2015-edition health IT product criteria, the company announced Nov. 21.

The EMRs were certified by Drummond Group, one of several software certification organizations ONC approved to test EMR software under the agency's 2015-edition certification criteria, the most recent specifications available. The EMRs are OK'd for attesting to Meaningful Use Stage 2 and Stage 3.

To achieve the certification, GE Healthcare implemented 35 open application programming interfaces in the two EMRs, as required by the ONC's 2015-edition criteria. These APIs enable select third-party IT solutions to apply data and integrate with the EMRs.

"As the industry continues its aim toward truly value-based care, it is critical that digital solutions offer seamless and secure ways for healthcare organizations and clinicians to help drive that change in ways that meet their patients' needs," said Geoffrey Lay, director for digital product management at GE Healthcare.
