more than a year of upgrades and enhancements and months of testing at
the ICSA Labs EHR Certification Program, OpenEMR version 4.1 received full ‘meaningful use’ certification
for ambulatory care settings on Friday, August 19. This means that the

July News Letter

July News Letter 150 150 Tony McCormick

I thought that is was about time to
drop you a line and let you know what was happening in the MI-SQUARED
world. We’ve had a very busy quarter.

  1. We have added several new
    customers! This is good news, and it also means that we have been
    very, very busy trying to make sure everyones needs are met. These
    new customers represent several specialties that we have not had on
    board yet, so custom forms development galore. We have added a
    Podiatrist, Orthopedic Surgeon, Ophthalmologist, Summer Camp Clinic
    and a Injury Care Clinic, as well as a new Primary Care clinic. The
    “sales pipeline” is full and we expect to be adding several more
    customers this month.

  2. We have also been awarded 2 new
    software development contracts and have 2 new LabCorp interface
    orders.

The OpenEMR project is going
gang-busters and is on track to get full ONC EHR certification in the
next few weeks. As soon as that happens we will be talking to you
about what steps you need to take to register your EMR with the CMS
to be qualified for the ARRA Meaningful use remunerations. There
are tons of new features, some required for certification, and others
that are just awesome enhancements. Wait until you seen them!

MI-SQUARED is ready to release a very
nice patient portal and we are bundling in basic practice web site
hosting with that add on feature for anyone that needs it.

MI-SQUARED is about ready to release a
full E-Prescribing module through NewCrop that we developed in a
joint venture and it will be released under that companies new name
ZMG.

MI-SQUARED added a new online support
feature to all of our hosted customers that will let you drop in and
have a live online chat with one of our support and/or development
staff as well as any of our other customers that might be online at
the time. It’s meant to be a group chat room. Share your thoughts,
asks questions and get to know your fellow MI2 customer peers!

OpenEMR, nice quote from SF

OpenEMR, nice quote from SF 150 150 Tony McCormick

“I believe we have a very capable developer community that can put
together great functionality. Some of us who are actual practicing
doctors will try to chip in whenever possible regarding UI and
usability. I like the way the project is run. It is easily the most
“open source” project i have been part of.” – Mukoya
