The Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program has tested and certified the AbbaDox EHR 14 from IDS, guaranteeing the software’s compliance with criteria adopted by the Secretary of the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The Drummond Group is a software test and certification lab accredited for the Office of the National Coordinator HIT Certification Program as an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) and an Accredited Test Lab (ATL). The certification attests that the EHR meets meaningful use criteria, and that vendors demonstrating meaningful use of the system are eligible to receive federal payments.

“AbbaDox EHR 14 is the next logical step in our enduring commitment to creating a seamless, cloud-based IT platform enabling connectivity across the continuum of care,” said Yaniv Dagan, CEO of IDS. “Our new certified next-generation EHR exceeds meaningful use requirements to support advanced cross-enterprise, cross-vendor communications and unrivaled data sharing across medical sites and EHR systems. It keeps users future-focused, while helping them qualify for meaningful use reimbursements today.”

The AbbaDox EHR is a scalable, cloud-based system with capabilities for scheduling, insurance eligibility, and meaningful use reporting. The system integrates seamlessly with other AbbaDox modules, including those for speech recognition, referring physician reporting, and analytics.

“Leveraging information technology for healthcare initiatives provides the opportunity to deliver a high-level quality of care and efficiency which essentially benefits and enhances the overall patient experience,” said Rik Drummond, CEO of the Drummond Group. “We have been testing software for more than a decade and will continue to provide our extensive experience testing and certifying complex systems for multiple industries, as well as ensuring interoperability and security remain key components in the growing healthcare industry.”
