Aprima Electronic Health Record a Top Choice for Colorado Physicians
Dallas, Texas (January 18, 2011) — Aprima Electronic Health Record (EHR) has been selected by the Colorado Regional Extension Center (CO-REC) as an approved EHR integration product that “provides everything a physician needs to meet current meaningful use criteria, as well as to be well-positioned for future, more advanced criteria.”
CO-REC is an initiative of six organizations led by CORHIO, the Colorado Regional Health Information Organization. CO-REC’s selected vendors have ONC-ATCB certified EHR products thatmet a series of rigorous technical and cost criteria.
CO-REC and CORHIO developed this list to help physicians find their way through the sometimes frustrating process of vendor and product selection. The organization will also assist physician practices throughout the EHR implementation process.
“There are hundreds of EHR systems to choose from,” said CO-REC Director Robyn Leone. “Yet it’s not clear exactly how systems compare or what buyers get for their money. Our vendor and product selection process emphasized transparency, accountability and cost containment, so that physicians know what they’re buying.”
To evaluate EHRs for their approved list, CO-REC incorporated federal standards developed by the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, then went beyond them. The agency verified that Aprima EHR included all the optimal functions a physician would need, such as being able to integrate lab and hospital data, as well as connect to the CORHIO and Quality Health Network Health Information Exchanges.
Aprima CEO Michael Nissenbaum said, “Aprima has worked hard to stay on top of all the new federal requirements as they emerge. We’re pleased to be recognized by CO-REC and look forward to helping more Colorado physicians complete a smooth EHR transition and earn ARRA bonuses.”
Regarding the benefits to physicians, Nissenbaum continued, “Aprima customers have consistently seen improvements in their top-line productivity while simultaneously reducing costs and saving time. Physicians are able to reduce stress on themselves and their staff and spend more time with their families, or see more patients with the time they save. Adding the value of Meaningful Use stimulus dollars is like icing on the cake for most of them.”
