Objective Medical Systems, a Houma-based company that specializes in providing cardiovascular solutions for cardiologists, has announced its Electronic Health Record (EHR) system has earned Meaningful Use Stage 2 Certification from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.
The health IT company believes that discrete data and background analysis will revolutionize the practice of medicine by improving patient care, increasing physician efficiency, reducing errors and more. This recent certification is a step toward enabling cardiovascular practices across the nation to select an EHR built specifically for their needs, according to the press release.
“Our EHR and diagnostic modules are revolutionizing the way cardiologists work,” said Colby LeMaire, CEO at Objective Medical Systems. “Our nation’s heart doctors are incredibly overwhelmed. The only solution is to provide streamlined technology to make everyday operations more efficient.”
Meaningful Use certifications are awarded to companies who provide technology to improve patient care. Through the program and its connection to the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, the federal government reimburses providers and healthcare professionals that purchase Meaningful Use certified technology.
