Specifically, the newly certified products are:

  • Cerner Millennium PowerChart 2007, by Cerner Corporation
  • Advanced Clinical Systems, MAGIC 5.6, by Meditech, Inc.
  • INVISION Clinicals Version 27.0 with Siemens Pharmacy and Med Administration Check (MAK), Version 24.0, by Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. (pre-market conditional)
