HILLSBORO, Ore., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- First Insight Corporation announced today that MaximEyes EHR software, Version 126.96.36.199, is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as an EHR Module on August 23, 2013 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable Eligible Provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria supports both Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
"First Insight is the FIRST 'eye care only' software company to be listed on the 2014 ONC Certified HIT Product List," said Nitin Rai, President and CEO of First Insight. "First Insight plans to attest additional criteria and quality measures to attain Complete EHR certification well in advance of compliancy deadlines. We believe that by first receiving the EHR Module certification, this helps pave the way for eligible optometrists and ophthalmologists to demonstrate meaningful use and qualify for both Stage 1 and Stage 2 Medicare and Medicaid incentives. As a leading EHR solutions partner for optometry and ophthalmology practices, our company is committed to supporting and guiding our customers to becoming meaningful users through exceptional service, training, education and support. We maintain a leadership role in the industry by being first in adopting new standards in MaximEyes EHR. In addition, our 2014 Users Conference will focus on providing real life examples on what eligible providers must do to meet Stage 2 attestation."

The EHR Module 2014 Edition means EHR technology is certified for at least one of the 2014 Edition EHR certification criteria for either the ambulatory or inpatient practice setting. An EHR Module could provide a single capability required by one certification criterion or it could provide all capabilities but one, required by the certification criteria for a Complete EHR.
The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2014 Edition criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology. Companies offering ONC HIT certified EHR modules may return to test additional ONC 2014 Edition criteria and certify their products as Complete EHRs later. ONC HIT certification updates will be available at http://www.cchit.org as they occur.
"CCHIT congratulates companies successfully achieving EHR technology certification," said Alisa Ray, executive director, CCHIT. "These companies are now able to make their products available to providers wishing to adopt health IT to demonstrate meaningful use and earn federal incentives."
