Medical Director ready for the ePIP and PCEHR
Health Communication Network (HCN) has announced that users of its Medical Director and PracSoft software will qualify for the new eHealth Practice Incentives Program (ePIP) following its listing on NEHTA's online product register as complying with the requirement for full interface with the PCEHR.
Medical Director and PracSoft have been listed on the registers for HI Service integration for some months, along with electronic transfer of prescriptions capability for MD. HCN clients who use a Secure Message Delivery (SMD) compliant messaging service will also fulfil the secure messaging requirement.
An HCN spokesperson confirmed today that Medical Director, the market-leading clinical software package, has officially been approved and is now on the PIP eHealth Product Register for PCEHR compliance.
“This is great news and testament to the dedication and effort put in by our employees over the Christmas and New Year period to achieve this milestone for our valued customers,” the spokesperson said.
“We are now in the final stages of testing and are expecting a general release (version MD/PS 3.14d) towards the end of this month.”
Practices wishing to qualify for the new ePIP must show they are using compliant software for the first four requirements by February 1, with full PCEHR interface capability by May 1.
The HCN spokesperson said the company had also created a dedicated eHealth page to assist its customers with ePIP preparations.
