Patterson Dental Introduces Eaglesoft Clinician – an EHR Solution
Eaglesoft Clinician is fully certified for federal EHR incentive programs
ST. PAUL, Minn. – (November 1, 2012) – Patterson Dental Supply, Inc., introduces Eaglesoft Clinician, a fully certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution designed to help dental offices qualify for federal incentive payments. To develop Eaglesoft Clinician, Patterson has partnered with Emdeon, a leading provider of revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions. The program is available now to users of Eaglesoft Practice Management Software, and will be fully interfaced with the upcoming version of the software, Eaglesoft 17.
Eaglesoft Clinician has received the federal government’s “meaningful use” stamp of approval by earning complete EHR Ambulatory certification. The designation officially deems the electronic health record (EHR) software capable of enabling providers to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) program, the EHR software is 2011/2012 compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Drummond Group’s ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology—a key component of the federal government’s push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.
In addition to allowing offices to meet meaningful use criteria, Eaglesoft Clinician also gives dentists the ability to submit prescriptions electronically. These capabilities add to the list of efficiency-minded features included in Eaglesoft 16, the number one practice management software on the market. Eaglesoft 16 streamlines everyday tasks for every member of the dental team, helping the whole office run quickly and efficiently. Designed to be intuitive and easy to use, Eaglesoft also offers advanced, customizable tools and features to help practices become more profitable and productive.
To join the list of Eaglesoft offices that are already using Eaglesoft Clinician and receiving incentive payments, dentists should contact Emdeon at 1.866.369.8805. Upon the release of Eaglesoft 17, Eaglesoft Clinician users will be transitioned to the fully integrated version of the software.
