Our Patient Relationship Manager™ (PRM) 2008 has been certified by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT®) and we are proud to have received a 100% for all criteria. The certification is valid through 2011. The electronic health record (EHR) component was given a perfect score for:

  • Functionality – ability to create and manage electronic records for all patients, as well as automating workflow in a physician’s office
  • Interoperability – ability to receive and send electronic data to other entities such as laboratories
  • Security – safeguarding patient information

Why does this matter?

CCHIT certification sets us apart. Physicians can be overwhelmed by the number and variety of systems available and trust the CCHIT seal as a vital criterion in selecting their EHR. The Certification Commission includes representatives from a wide variety of stakeholder groups, including healthcare providers, payers, vendors, consumers, researchers, public health agencies and informatics experts. Product certification is not only valued by physicians, but by insurers and other parties in the healthcare system as well.

What does this mean to you?

Physicians empowered by our technology have more control over their time. Aprima puts powerful, affordable, usable EHR-based medical practice systems within reach of every practice, large and small.
