January 21, 2016 -  CRISP’s, CAliPHR, v1.0.0 has achieved ONC HIT 2014 Edition modular EHR certification, which designates that the software is capable of supporting eligible providers (EPs) with meeting the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use measures required to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

  • If a user elects to transmit their clinical data to CAliPHR using the C-CDA instead of the QRDA Category 1 data format, the number of CQMs possible, and the accuracy of their results may be impacted.)
