Ann Arbor, MI, Oct. 01, 2013 — Truven Health Analytics™ announced today that its Meaningful Use Quality Manager version 2.0 is now compliant with the 2014 Office of the National Coordinator’s criteria for clinical quality measures reporting.

 

As of September 18, 2013, the product is certified as an Electronic Health Record Module by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an Office of the National Coordinator (ONC)Authorized Certification Body. In accordance with the applicable hospital certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the 2014 ONC criteria supports stages 1 and 2 of meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

“I am pleased that we have achieved this certification, validating Truven Health Analytics as a leader in clinical quality reporting, ” said Mike Boswood, president and CEO of Truven Health Analytics. “And for our customers, it is evidence of our determination to be a valued partner as they navigate evolving reporting standards that could affect hospital funding.”
