Acuitas activEHR 2.0 Certified Complete Costs and Limitations
The following costs and limitations for 3rd party vendor services, interfaces for which are either embedded within or linked to Acuitas activEHR 2.0, are:
Drfirst/Rcopia. This vendor provides e-Prescribing services to mutual customers. Acuitas activEHR 2.0 provides a link via API to DrFirst from within the exam module, where active patient details are fed through a secure web service to display medication/allergy/active prescription details for that patient. Flat rate fees for this capability are by provider and collected by Ocuco Limited on an annual ongoing basis and passed on to the vendor. There are no known technical or practical limitations.
Secure Exchange Solutions (SES). This vendor provides secure email addresses that allow for secure encrypted exchange of Patient Health Information (PHI) between healthcare providers (including transitions of care, discharge summaries and clinical messaging functionality [Relevant certification criteria: §§ 170.314(b)(1) and (2), h(1)-(3).]). Acuitas activEHR 2.0 has embedded an interface within the application that consumes a client-specific security certificate to facilitate in-app access to the client’s SES mailbox. This functionality allows users to send and receive Direct-based messages to/from other users of certified health IT systems. Direct messages may include clinical data, notes, and other information, subject to the limitations noted. Fees for this capability are remitted by the EP directly to the vendor, and are due on an annual ongoing basis for each direct email address. Further ongoing costs may be incurred if additional secure email addresses are required for additional EP’s. Pursuant to Secure Exchange Solutions’ security policy, the Direct messaging capability is restricted and users are only able to exchange messages with others or Health IT systems that also have the Direct messaging capabilities. Secure Exchange Solutions is a HISP that is part of the DirectTrust network. There are no known technical or practical limitations.
Ocuco Limited Patient Portal. Ocuco Limited will be providing its own Patient Portal mechanism to allow EP’s to comply with related Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements related to support of online patient service (Reference: ONC Criteria Reference 170.314.e.1). Fees levied for access to patient information via the portal mechanism will be collected on a monthly ongoing basis as a flat rate per provider. Patients must be capable of receiving a security token via cell phone, email or authentication application to be able to log in as the portal enforces 2-factor authentication.
