San Jose, Calif.-based Axolotl Corp.’s Elysium 9, has been approved as a pre-market conditional Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) Certified 08 Ambulatory electronic health record, the company says.
Pre-market conditionally certified EHRs, Axolotl says, are new products that become fully certified once their operational use at a physician office site has been verified. The company says it intends to maintain Elysium 9’s certification to meet the Chicago-based organization’s required standards and certification criteria that will ensure physicians are well positioned to achieve and demonstrate meaningful use as referenced in the HITECH act. According to the company, the new software version is freely available, at no additional license cost, to its 25,000 licensed physicians, many of whom contributed to its development.
According to the company, a CCHIT Certified 08 Ambulatory EHR ensures additional electronic prescribing features, enhanced ability to view X-rays and other diagnostic images, and the better management of patient consents and authorizations.
