ABELMed software passes OntarioMD specs

TORONTO – ABELMed Inc. announced that ABELMed EHR-EMR/PM v9 clinical and practice management software has achieved the OntarioMD CMS Specification 3.0 certification.

To meet the OntarioMD CMS specification v3.0, systems must demonstrate functionality to support chronic disease management, including flowsheets, enhanced querying and reporting capabilities, and the ability to connect to the knowledge resources provided on the physician website.

In addition, meeting the OntarioMD CMS specification v3.0 prepares certified Offerings for e-Health initiatives such as the Ontario Laboratory Information System (OLIS) and the provincial Diabetes Registry.

Arun Rele, Chairman and CEO of ABELMed Inc. stated, “We are one of the few vendors who have achieved full OntarioMD CMS Specification v3.0 certification and completed the site reference survey to date. This most recent certification of ABELMed EHR-EMR/PM v9 allows us to continue providing Ontario physicians with new features and enhancements, such as chronic disease management flow sheets, automatic alerts to assist in maintaining treatment regimens, creation and follow up of cohorts, ability to view cumulative reports from multiple labs, historical snapshots of the CPP and more.

“A number of products available on the market use outdated technologies and are unable to meet today’s stringent standards,” he said.

“ABELMed Inc. worked hard to incorporate the new requirements into their Offering and to pass the certification process” said Brian Forster, Chief Executive Officer of OntarioMD Inc.

Serving Ontario physicians for over 30 years, this latest certification of ABELMed EHR-EMR/PM v9 strongly positions ABELMed Inc., a 100 percent Canadian owned, self financed and debt free company, to remain a leading provider of practice management/clinical software.
