Nashville, Tenn. — Qualifacts Systems, Inc., announced today that its CareLogic Enterprise EHR is 2011/2012 compliant and has been tested and certified by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) as an EHR Module 2011/2012 under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) meaningful use rules.

"By achieving ONC-ATCB certification, and because of our Software-as-a-Service delivery model, all of our Enterprise customers are now using a certified EHR,” says Gregg Boyle, Qualifacts chief technology officer. “Combined with our fast implementations, behavioral health and human service providers now have a certified EHR option that can pay for itself in the first year.”

Qualifacts’ customers are excited about CareLogic’s certification and their opportunity to begin demonstrating Meaningful Use, too. Dr. Gail Lawson, executive director of Sound Community Services in New London, Conn., says, “Meaningful Use incentives will allow our agency to draw down significantly more revenue, and because of our use of the Qualifacts EHR, we are almost 100% there.”

Laurie Callaghan, administrator of information technology for Barber National Institute in Erie, Pa., says, “We know that Qualifacts is firmly committed to providing the most advanced EHR system possible. Having an application that is certified will allow us to receive maximum reimbursement for the services we provide.”

Jeff Forman, CFO for Behavioral Healthcare Partners of Central Ohio in Newark, Ohio, says, “One of the reasons we went with CareLogic was our confidence that Qualifacts had both the technical expertise and software platform to meet any EHR standards promulgated by the various regulatory bodies. At BHPCO we believe that participating in the Meaningful Use Program will provide additional resources that will allow us to continue with the development of our electronic health record, and with our six eligible providers, we anticipate that the incentive payments will cover a substantial portion of the cost of ownership."

Qualifacts is hosting a series of webinars to give behavioral health agencies detailed information on how they can meet Meaningful Use requirements and receive incentive payments in 2011. Interested parties can see a schedule and register at the Qualifacts Web site, include the site's Meaningful Use section for information including updates from the company and links to key government announcements.
