ATLANTA, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta's MOSAIQ® Oncology Information System (OIS) has been tested and certified as a Complete Ambulatory EHR under the Drummond Group's Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. This EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services. 

Drummond Group's ONC-ACB certification program certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, health care providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology – a key component of the federal government's push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by US health care providers.

MOSAIQ version 2.60, which met the requirements for Complete Ambulatory EHR, is an OIS that includes capabilities for both medical oncology and radiation oncology physicians.

"Achieving Stage 2 meaningful use in the ONC-ACB certification process reflects the dedication of many Elekta employees to continually refine this solution for the benefit of customers," says Todd Powell, Executive Vice President, Elekta Software. "MOSAIQ is the most complete, interoperable and robust OIS solution on the market, and now is the first ambulatory comprehensive oncology EHR to receive this ONC-ACB certification. We are eager to help our customers move their practices to the latest version of MOSAIQ in 2014."

MOSAIQ continues to define the market for oncology information systems, and was the first comprehensive OIS, tracing its lineage over more than 20 years of innovation. It was the first comprehensive product to be certified in 2011, and was the first to have a successful attestation for 2011. MOSAIQ also has been used by more physicians in all oncology specialties than any other system, and more than $28 million in incentives have been distributed to MOSAIQ customers in the last three years.
