FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

M2.Webchart.3.7 is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by ONC-ATCB InfoGard Laboratories in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
MicroBloggingMD 2.0 is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by ONC-ATCB InfoGard Laboratories in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
Tom Wilkes, President and CEO of M2 offers the following insight into the company’s two pronged strategy. "By obtaining Complete Inpatient EHR certification for both our current product version and for our next generation, mobile centric product we have satisfied two very important objectives. Our existing customers can continue to execute their plans for attaining meaningful use knowing that their application is fully certified. Also, we have given both our existing customers and any new or potential customers an exciting, mobile focused complete EHR that is certified for Stage 1 with a well defined, direct path to later certification."
Wilkes goes on to explain, "Our entire development and certification effort has been focused on not just obtaining the necessary approvals but with an eye to the full intent of the meaningful use standards and to delivering on the promise of an electronic patient care environment. MBMD 2.0 is clinical decision support at its core. While the workflow and transaction processing elements of a traditional EHR are present every function has a best practices or hospital policy support component that is seamlessly implemented and relatively unobtrusive. MBMD is truly the future of patient care."
