Behavioral Health EHR Software

ICANotes is a 2015 Edition Certified Health IT Product

Meeting All Service Standards

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology works with four organizations designated as Accredited Certification Bodies as of February 2017. Also known as ONC-ACBs, these organizations test and certify electronic health record (EHR) systems.

ONC (Office of National Coordinator) Health IT Certification Program is a voluntary program established by ONC to provide for the certification of health IT. ONC establishes the Health IT certification program requirements as well as outcome-focused requirements known as "certification criteria" for health IT developers and health IT modules. ONC has established the 2015 Edition Health Information Technology (Health IT) Certification Criteria, 2015 Edition Base Electronic Health Record (EHR) Definition, and ONC Health IT Certification Program Modifications Final Rule.

ICANotes meets the standards for the 2015 Edition Health Information Technology (Health IT) Certification Criteria, 2015 Edition Base Electronic Health Record (EHR) Definition and was certified by one of the ONC-ACBs, The Drummond Group, on December 31, 2018.

Customer support related to MIPS and Meaningful Use programs which require the 2015 Edition Health Information Technology is limited to documentation and webinars. Additional fees are required for individual customer training. A specific  provider workflow is required and included in the documentation to ensure that MIPS and Meaningful Use reporting is accurate.

Real World Test Plan


Meaningful Use in Behavioral Healthcare

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act requires healthcare professionals to demonstrate meaningful use of EHRs. According to this program, a professional implements meaningful use over three stages:

  • Stage 1: Data gathering and fundamental EHR adoption
  • Stage 2: Establishing health information exchange and care coordination
  • Stage 3: Improving healthcare outcomes through technology

As the healthcare industry changes, so will these stages and requirements. We plan to adapt ICANotes to any future developments to ensure that your practice still qualifies.

How Does ICANotes' ONC-Certified Software Qualify?

ICANotes can help you reach Stage 3 of meaningful use implementation as a Stage-3-certified EHR. ICANotes qualifies for this program stage through:

In short, ICANotes qualifies for Stage 3 certification through secure and reliable technology.

The Benefits of Choosing a Stage 3 and ONC-Certified EHR

An EHR software with Stage 3 and ONC-ATCB certification such as ICANotes can provide the following advantages for your practice:

  • The most advanced qualifications possible: To meet Stage 3 requirements, your technology must meet 2015 Edition certifications. ICANotes meets 2015 Edition criteria and can help you reach Stage 3 of qualifications.
  • Demonstrated to have the potential to improve care outcomes: Since Stage 3 focuses on improving care for your patients, a Stage-3-certified EHR can help you meet this goal. We designed ICANotes to improve your practice's operations and efficiency.
  • Medicare EHR requirements: Under Medicare regulations, EHRs must meet meaningful use standards. ICANotes' design and features will keep your records compliant for more successful audit outcomes.

Our ONC certification will allow us to help you provide a higher quality of care for your patients and comply with state HIE mandates for interoperability.
