Product Overview
The Future Called and Wants to Know if You’re EMR Compliant.

In 2009, the U.S. government passed the HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The HITECH Act mandates that by 2014 doctors and hospitals must be using a certified EMR/EHR system, otherwise known as EMR/EHR compliant. EMR compliant also refers to proving “meaningful use” of these EMR systems which can include obtaining and utilizing medical devices that are connected to the EMR system. Those who are not compliant by 2014 will lose federal subsidies and be penalized with diminished Medicare and Medicaid payments.

To help practitioners become EMR compliant and meet meaningful use criteria, Health o meter® Professional developed the Elevate EMRscale. The Elevate EMRscale is the only scale on the market that is both EMR connected and compliant. Elevate not only electronically gathers height, weight and BMI, but it also transmits those measurements into EMR/EHR systems through Welch Allyn Vital Signs® LXi or Welch Allyn Connex® Vital Signs monitors. Elevate’s connectivity with the Welch Allyn Vital Signs LXi or Welch Allyn Connex Vital Signs monitors allows the EMR system to accept the scale’s data, for those EMR systems that have written an interface to these Welch Allyn devices. This automatic transmission of the data into the EMR/EHR system helps practitioners comply with the HITECH Act’s regulation that height, weight and BMI must be electronically stored in a patient’s health record.

Device connectivity is becoming vital for healthcare facilities and the Elevate EMRscale is the simplest solution for practitioners to “Get Connected”.
