Practice management systems are a critical linchpin to the success of a medical practice and achieving its goals of driving down costs and improving quality. Our Practice Management System Accreditation Program (PMSAP) creates a framework of trust to ensure a common level of system functionality across the industry.
The program provides a comprehensive review of Practice Management System vendors in the areas of privacy, security, mandated standards, and operating rules, as well as key operational functions. The accreditation program assesses an organization’s ability to meet privacy and security, HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus Rule, 21st Century Cures Act, and ACA requirements, as well as technical performance, business processes and resource management. The comprehensive third-party review provides an additional level of confidence for medical practice and other healthcare provider customers who are under competitive pressures to continually maximize their cash flow while providing the highest quality of patient care.
The program was designed for Practice Management System vendors who provide the necessary software to keep medical offices running smoothly and facilitate everything from practice management and operations to revenue cycle optimization, monthly report generation, and the seamless integration with Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems.
Developed by industry-peers, the accreditation program’s criteria, standards and framework creates a core set of requirements for compliance. In addition, the Practice Management System Accreditation Program:
ensures trust for managing the digital credentials used between exchange users;
reviews the key functions of portability, interoperability, clinical integration, compliance monitoring, billing, reporting and industry certification/accreditation;
serves as a baseline standard for providers in the process of vendor selection and KLAS reviews.
