August 1, 2018

BOSTON, MA – August 1, 2018 – Orion Health’s Communicate solution has achieved Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC-Health IT) 2015 Edition Health IT Module Certification via Drummond Group LLC, an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) that has been empowered to test software for compliance with the requirements of the United States federal government’s program. The stamp of approval designates that the software offers the functionality that enables eligible providers and hospitals to meet the requirements of various regulatory programs that require use of certified Electronic Health Records (EHR) technology.

Orion Health’s Communicate solution provides reliable and protected communication between patients, healthcare providers and organizations across desktop and electronic medical record (EMR) systems. Users anywhere can quickly send accurate patient information to other healthcare providers or to patients, reducing the risk of communication errors and ensuring privacy and confidentiality at all times.

“With mounting attacks on privacy, healthcare organizations are tightening up their security measures to protect data,” said Ian McCrae, Founder and CEO of Orion Health. “Our Communicate solution provides a secure way for healthcare providers, organizations, and patients to send sensitive data and communications. This stamp of approval provides healthcare providers and hospitals with the peace of mind that the software is compliant to the highest of regulatory standards, while protecting the communication between providers and patients.” 
To earn the certification, the Orion Health Communicate software was tested to be in accordance with applicable standards and certification criteria put forth by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
