May 27, 2010 — Sevocity Announces Free EHR System for Educators and Regional Extension Centers
True Internet/Cloud EHR System Ideal for Educating Providers, Clinical Staff, and REC Support Staff
San Antonio, TX -Sevocity, a division of Conceptual MindWorks, Inc. (CMI), today announced Sevocity U, its Internet-based Ambulatory Electronic Health Records (EHR) program for Regional Extension Centers (RECs), Local Extension Centers (LECs), Management Service Organizations (MSOs), Technical Colleges, Universities, Medical Schools, and other organizations needing a turn-key EHR for training.
Under the program, educational organizations will receive free use of the fully functional Sevocity EHR for up to 20 users (teachers and students) through a demonstration clinic specifically for the educational organization. Because Sevocity is a true Internet-based EHR, these organizations will not need to purchase, install, or maintain any servers or special software. All that is required to access the system is a standard personal computer and an Internet connection, making student access for training and practice easy for the educator. Sevocity U demonstration clinics will use the fully functional production version of Sevocity EHR.
Sevocity 08 is CCHIT Certified® by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT®) and meets the Commission’s ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) criteria for 2008. Sevocity will release its next version of Sevocity EHR this summer, at which time the company will apply for CCHIT 2011. Sevocity is also committed to “meaningful use” certification and plans to apply as soon as certification is available. Sevocity’s customer agreement includes a commitment to certification and any other requirements for providers to receive EHR incentives under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 (ARRA).
“We developed this program because we recognize the tremendous challenge Regional Extension Centers and other educators have teaching clinicians and others about Electronic Health Records in a very short period of time and with limited funding,” stated Catherine Huddle, VP of Market Development with Sevocity. “While more standardization of EHRs is coming, today most systems have the same basic functionality. Because Sevocity is a true Internet-based EHR and is very easy to use, it provides the ideal platform for educators providing EHR training.”
Sevocity is rolling out this program in phases. Phase I begins today with the availability of Sevocity to the first ten (10) educational organizations that apply. Interested organizations should contact Sevocity at 877-777-2298 orEHReduation@Sevocity.com.
