CorrecTek, Inc. is pleased to announce that its flagship products, CorrecTek 2014 and CorrecTek Spark have received ARRA Certification as ‘Complete EHRs’. This is the strongest certification an electronic health records (EHR) system can obtain and requires CorrecTek 2014 and CorrecTek Spark to pass stringent tests in 34 different areas of functionality.
In January of 2014, some correctional facilities were allowed to apply for ARRA stimulus funds from the federal government. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 includes provisions for eligible physicians that see a significant number of either Medicare or Medicaid patients to qualify for between $44,000 to $65,000 in funds to purchase and utilize a certified electronic health record (EHR) system over a five year period beginning in 2011.
In concert with eligibility for ARRA stimulus funds, CorrecTek 2014 and CorrecTek Spark provide medical, dental, and mental health correctional physicians and staff the ability to maintain secure patient medical records using tools that include branching order sets, an electronic medication administration record, sick call request tracking, workflow, compliance, exception, and statistical reports, patient-specific clinical trend reporting, rapid template-based data entry, and bi-directional interfaces with offender management systems, pharmacy vendor software, outside lab testing, commissary systems and radiology software and you can read more more about the CorrecTek Spark here.
With the state of Kentucky, CorrecTek is also participating in a national pilot project facilitated by Community Oriented Correctional Health Services (COCHS) to demonstrate the capability of a correctional EHR to both share information with a state health information exchange (HIE) and to prove that patient protected data (e.g. HIV diagnosis) can be removed prior to inclusion of the patient data in the HIE.
We are proud to announce the ARRA certification of CorrecTek and to continue our commitment of providing quality products and services to the correctional healthcare community nationwide. We serve correctional clients in 24 states. ARRA Certification of CorrecTek 2014 and CorrecTek Spark is our next step as the national leader in correctional EHR.
