New York, New York, UNITED STATES

Troy, New York, March 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Etransmedia Technology, Inc has been tested and certified under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. This EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 

"Direct Care Coordinator is a truly revolutionary product. It brings the latest clinical information exchange standards to providers' finger tips. At the same time, it offers a smooth work-flow and UI making it easy to adopt and use the product every day. Our customers are really excited about the release," said Etransmedia's Chairman, Vikash Agrawal. He added "using this product, they expect to meet MU2 and also streamline their care-coordination efforts."

Drummond Group's ONC-ACB certification program 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.

Direct Care Coordinator, which met the requirements for EHR Modular (Ambulatory), allows practices to exchange referrals compliant with industry standards (Direct) and Meaningful Use (2014 edition.) It allows providers to electronically coordinate patient-care across platforms thus creating a true continuum of care.

"We have been testing software for more than a decade and will continue to provide our extensive experience testing and certifying complex systems for multiple industries, as well as ensuring interoperability and security remain key components in the growing healthcare industry."
