Mana Health‘s patient portal, Patient Gateway, has achieved ONC HIT 2014 Edition Modular EHR certification. Eligible healthcare organizations (HCOs) participating in Stage 2 meaningful use achievement can use the Patient Gateway to demonstrate that they have met the Patient Electronic Access objective and qualify for incentive payments under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
“This certification enables an eligible HCO or provider to meet the patient engagement requirements for Stage 2 by allowing their patients online access to their personal health data and to view, download and transmit personal health information to care providers,” said Mana Health’s CEO, Chris Bradley.
Mana Health also announced integration with personal health devices such as FitBit, Jawbone and Apple and Android phones.The Patient Gateway features an easy-to-grasp meaningful use report creator for providers and hospital administrators, allowing them to quickly track their qualification status. A message center allows for the secure transmission of messages and requests to/from providers, as well as the ability to enter and share data not found in the provider’s record, which helps facilitate proactive patient engagement and patient/provider care coordination that extends beyond the basic requirements of meaningful use.
New certification aside, Mana Health also announced major enhancements to its Patient Gateway, including the capability for single patient portal integration with multiple personal health devices such as FitBit, Jawbone and Apple and Android phones. Moreover, the company said it will launch the Mana Health mobile app in the fourth quarter to integrate captured activity data from Apple phones via HealthKit.
