Fort Wayne, IN September 27, 2011 Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE), a web-based, minimally invasive™ electronic health record (EHR) provider, was recently selected as a participating vendor by NJ-HITEC, the Regional Extension Center (REC) for New Jersey. As a participating vendor, MIE's WebChart EHR will help NJ-HITEC's participating healthcare provider's transition from paper to electronic health records and qualify for meaningful use incentives under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
WebChart from MIE is an accessible, interoperable, flexible and affordable electronic health record system designed to achieve meaningful use without turning a practice upside down. MIE was one of the first EHR vendors to receive ONC-ATCB certification for Meaningful Use Stage One as a Complete EHR (WebChart EHR 5.1) and is also a CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR (WebChart EHR Version 5.1) with a 5-star usability rating – the highest possible rating.
"We want to help every member of our regional extension center become a meaningful user of EHR technologies. We've made it our mission to find the best strategic technology partners to help New Jersey physicians reach these goals," said Ron Manke, North Jersey Director of The New Jersey Health Information Technology Extension Center (NJ-HITEC). "MIE has already helped several physicians in New Jersey complete the meaningful use attestation process in a cost effective and efficient manner, all with minimal practice disruption. We are proud to have MIE as a participating vendor because we’ve seen first -hand how the WebChart EHR can be successful in real practice settings."
In August 2011, MIE helped Stephen Thomsen, M.D. of Hudson Essex Nephrology, become the first physician to attest for meaningful use in Hudson County and in Union City, New Jersey. The practice has transitioned over 11,000 patient files to MIE’s WebChart EHR and is also offering a fully integrated personal health record (PHR) from NoMoreClipboard, allowing patients to take a more active role in their healthcare.
"We look forward to working with NJ-HITEC and their physician partners in the future. WebChart EHR from MIE is the perfect solution for small to mid-sized physician practices in New Jersey," said Bruce Lisanti, CEO of Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE). "It is an easy to use, affordable, Web-based platform accessible from any location, on any device that can be customized to a practice’s specific workflow."
