Glenwood Systems has completed software testing related to the MIPS 2019 performance period and is now finalizing certification details with Drummond Group.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a new Performance Interoperability measure for the 2019 performance period – Support Electronic Referral Loops by Receiving and Incorporating Health Information.
This new measure is a combination of two measures from 2018: Request/Accept Summary of Care and Clinical Information Reconciliation.
CMS required all certified EHR systems to build the new measure into their existing software and then have it tested and certified by an authorized affiliate.
Glenwood quickly updated GlaceEMR with the required changes then contacted Drummond Group for the next steps.
Drummond Group is an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) and Accredited Test Lab (ATL) of the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) Health IT Certification Program.
The group specializes in working with health IT developers, such as Glenwood, to certify EHR software for use by healthcare providers in regulatory programs.
Drummond worked with a group of senior developers at Glenwood to certify our ONC 2015 Edition software to be used by customers to compile data for the MIPS 2019 performance period.
Testing has now been completed and we anticipate the certification by Drummond Group to be finalized in early January 2020.
