FRANKLIN, Tenn., February 22, 2022 – MEDHOST®, a leading EHR (electronic health record) and healthcare IT solutions provider, has launched two critical solutions that will help hospitals comply with The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Promoting Interoperability Program—MEDHOST Cures 2023 Interoperability and MEDHOST Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) solutions.
MEDHOST Cures 2023 Interoperability Solution enables the access and exchange of electronic health information (EHI). Per the CMS mandate, this capability will allow hospitals to fulfill patients’ requests for healthcare data and enable facilities to export system-wide patient datasets across different care settings in machine-readable formats. Using the MEDHOST Cures 2023 Interoperability Solution, providers can also allow patients to download their EHI via the MEDHOST patient portal.
Another key component to the platform is an expanded FHIR API Integration that enhances a hospital’s ability to extend EHI exchanges to third-party solutions. This extension is enacted across the USCDI v1 data set of clinical information while providing an added layer of industry-standard security and compatibility. These certified features enable hospitals to more easily meet the EHI exchange requirements outlined in the federal program.1
The MEDHOST Electronic Case Reporting solution helps MEDHOST customers participating in the Promoting Interoperability program to meet new CMS public health reporting requirements by enabling them to generate and transmit case reports for specific reportable conditions. The solution automates several core reporting functions in furtherance of minimizing manual interventions, reducing workflow disruptions related to eligible case identification, and maintaining reportable condition trigger codes. This feature will also help hospitals to prevent penalties for non-compliance with the Promoting Interoperability Program requirements.
“We have always adhered to a policy of proactivity in preparing our customers to meet key regulatory mandates and provisions,” says Ken Misch, President at MEDHOST. “These solutions will put our customers in a position of strength, allowing them to fulfill each requirement with minimal workflow disruptions and avoid costly penalties.”
MEDHOST customers can reach out to their Customer Success Executives to learn more and sign up for these two solutions.
