I was really intrigued by the recent news about Health Care DataWorks receiving Modular EHR Certification. Of course, having a new company achieve a modular EHR certification isn’t that big of news. Except that in this case, it’s a Health Care Data Warehouse company that’s getting the EHR certification.

This is the first case that I’ve heard of an Enterprise Data Warehouse company receiving the EHR modular certification. It makes for an interesting approach for hospitals that might have legacy systems that won’t be certified to be able to satisfy the EHR certification and meaningful use requirements.

We’re working on an interview with Health Care DataWorks that we’ll be posting to our EMR, EHR and Healthcare IT Interview site shortly. I’m looking forward to learning more about the Health Care Data Warehouse’s role in meaningful use.
