Computer Zone Becomes the First VAR to Offer Certified EHR Products for Both Providers and Hospitals

Extensive Product Line Delivers an End-to-End Certified Solution to Organizations That Include Both In-Patient Facilities and Physician Practices

ROCKINGHAM, NC--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  Computer Zone, a leading provider of software and services for medical organizations, announced today that it is the first and only Value Added Reseller (VAR) able to sell and support certified complete EHR products for both physician practices and hospitals. Because of its extensive product line, Computer Zone can deliver an end-to-end solution that can help both hospitals and their associated practices comply with Meaningful Use requirements and work toward receiving funds under the ARRA stimulus program.

Under the ARRA stimulus program, separate certification programs have been established for hospitals and medical practices or "eligible providers." In addition, EHR products can be certified as "Complete EHRs" that satisfy all certification criteria or can be certified as "EHR Modules" that meet some but not all of the criteria. 

To qualify for ARRA stimulus funds, both hospitals and providers must implement a certified complete EHR or a combination of appropriate certified EHR modules and comply with "Meaningful Use" guidelines. Hospitals and physicians practices that meet these requirements can receive substantial financial incentives.

Computer Zone delivers complete end-to-end solutions that meet all the ARRA requirements for both hospitals and medical practices. These solutions include:

  • ChartAccess® EHR from Prognosis Health Information Systems for hospitals
  • SuiteMed™ IMS from SuiteMed, LLC for the ambulatory environment
  • Expert technical support, training and implementation services to support hospitals, doctors and staff members.

"Many organizations, hospitals and their associated physician practices are looking for one source to meet their EHR needs, both in-patient and ambulatory. At the same time, they want to make sure that they are using a certified EHR that will help them qualify for government financial incentives," said Sandy Huggins, vice president of Computer Zone. "Computer Zone is the first and only VAR in the U.S. that can sell and support certified EHR software solutions for hospitals and their associated physician practices."
