Altos Solutions, Inc. Partners with Innovatix, LLC for Oncology-specific EMR Offering
US non-acute care facilities to have preferred access to OncoEMR(TM) and OncoBilling(TM)
LOS ALTOS, Calif. (December 08, 2011) – Altos Solutions, Inc. today announced entering into an agreement with Innovatix, LLC that gives Innovatix’s membership of US non-acute care facilities preferred access to OncoEMR and OncoBilling, Altos Solutions’ electronic medical record (EMR) and billing system.
OncoEMR use is intuitive to the oncology process flow, easy-to-navigate, and includes e-Prescribing, PQRS tracking, and the patient portal, SeeMyChart(TM). Since 2004, OncoEMR use is well-established and used extensively throughout community-based oncology practices in the US and US territories. Chemotherapy regimens streamline the work for an oncologist and protect patient safety with built-in functionality specific to oncology. OncoEMR is the market leading web-based oncology-specific EMR.
OncoEMR was the first oncology-specific EMR to be certified* as 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR on November 11, 2010 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify
“Partnering with Innovatix and providing member services with preferred access to OncoEMR is a great example of how healthcare facilities service providers and technology developers can work together to advance oncology patient care no matter where the oncologist practices,” said Carla C. Wood, president of Altos Solutions. “We are extremely proud to establish a relationship with an extensive market leader in Innovatix, the nation’s largest group purchasing organization (GPO) with a wide presence and look forward to working with the company to support OncoEMR and OncoBilling use in their non-acute care member facilities,” noted Wood.
“We are pleased to offer our oncology members Altos Solutions’ OncoEMR on contract. It is a valuable addition to our purchasing portfolio, as it will help oncologists implement electronic health records and demonstrate meaningful use,” stated Cynthia L. Radford, Senior VP Specialty Pharmacy Management of Innovatix.
