This ONC-Health IT Certification gives customers the assurance that careMESH can be used for digital communications and its reports can be used in Promoting Interoperability attestation.
“Achieving 2015 ONC certification was important so that our customers could not only rely on careMESH for digital communications with the outside world, but also on our reports for attestation,” said careMESH President and COO, Justin Sims. “Without leaving their EHR, healthcare providers can use our National Provider Directory to identify any licensed clinician in the U.S, securely and digitally deliver referrals, discharges and other transitions of care, and then monitor and report on delivery. It’s a powerful combination that is unparalleled in the market today.”
