AZZLY Receives ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification as Complete EHR

Certification Enhances Company's Position in Electronic Health Records/Practice Management Software Arena

VERO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 21, 2011) - AZZLY®, a nationally recognized leader in electronic health records and patient care-management software development, today announced that its AZZLY EHR/PM/PHR comprehensive cloud-based platform is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR (Electronic Health Record) on April 13, 2011, by InfoGard, an ONC-ATCB, under the certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 Meaningful Use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). As the industry's first fully integrated, cloud-based EHR/Practice Management platform since the ARRA of 2009, AZZLY is also a CMS 2011 PQRS Qualified Vendor (one of only 13 of the original vetted vendors to meet all measures).

"As a Certified Complete EHR, we believe that we have a great opportunity to play a significant role in forging affordable solutions that will empower physicians and patients to deliver better outcomes through innovative technology and the application of common standards, common language, common codes and common sense," said Coletta Dorado, founder, President and CEO of the Vero-Beach-based AZZLY.
