Nashville health information technology firm CredenceHealth said its CHlive system has achieved certification for "meaningful use in clinical quality measures."
CHlive is a web-based application that interfaces with hospitals' existing IT systems and work flows to capture Core Measures data and track performance in those and other metrics. It meets the criteria for calculating and submitting clinical quality measures, as well as all security and IT standards, the company said. The certification from the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology means the system meets some of the measures required for providers seeking federal reimbursement for health IT systems under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
"This certification is a crucial component of the CHlive product suite for our clients to meet their meaningful use requirements, Stage 1 and beyond," said CredenceHealth President and CEO Justin Lanning. "This new module in combination with the entire CredenceHealth product suite creates an even more powerful set of knowledge delivered through our real-time clinical surveillance."
