PITTSBURGH, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Net Health announced today that Agility EHR version 10 is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as a Complete EHR on February 3, 2014 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable Eligible Providers (Ambulatory) certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

"The heart of Meaningful Use Stage 2 is care coordination," said Christopher Hayes, Chief Technology Officer.  "Having achieved ONC HIT certification supporting Meaningful Use Stage 2, Net Health now offers our Urgent Care clients an efficient workflow with streamlined care coordination and a means to qualify for remaining incentive payments. Our Occupational Health clients and blended clinic clients are also ensured improved continuity of care across sites of service and their provider base."

The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2014 Edition 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 congratulates companies successfully achieving EHR technology certification," said Alisa Ray, executive director, CCHIT. "These companies are now able to make their products available to providers wishing to adopt health IT to demonstrate meaningful use and earn Stage 1 or Stage 2 incentives."

Agility EHR, version 10's certification number is CC-2014-615770-1. ONC HIT certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
