Lisle, Ill. — Sequest Technologies Inc., announced that TIER (Total Integrated Electronic Record) v7.0, is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR on April 28, 2011, by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable Eligible Provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

"The Complete EHR Certification is very important to the continued success of our customer's daily efforts of providing the highest quality of care in concert with the Meaningful Use requirements," said Bill Connors, CEO of Sequest. "Our TIER product is truly a Totally Integrated Electronic Record and we believe that CCHIT's certification validates our company as an industry leader."

The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 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.

"CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives," said Karen M. Bell, MD, MSS, Chair, CCHIT.

TIER, v7.0s certification number is CC-1112-239620-1. ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nor does it guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.

The clinical quality measures to which TIER has been certified includes:

  • NQF 0421, 0013, 0028, 0041, 0024, 0038, 0084, 0061, 0043.

The additional software TIER relied upon to demonstrate compliance includes:

  • CCRYPT v1.9, Corepoint v4.1.0, TIER eRX, Hash MyFile, Sharefile, TIER Portal
