Report Recognizes Certify’s Ability to Achieve Deep EHR Interoperability, Unlike Any Other Vendor

Certify Data Systems, Inc., a pioneer of rapidly deployable and scalable Heath Information Exchange (HIE) systems, today announced that a report by analyst firm Chilmark Research recognized the company’s remarkable success in a still-maturing market, due to both Certify Data Systems’ innovative product offering and a company vision that aligns closely with market needs for deep electronic health record (EHR) interoperability, fast HIE implementations and true integration across a variety of ambulatory settings.

Research’s report, entitled “2012 HIE Market Report: Analysis & Trends of the Health Information Exchange Market,” analyzes the current state of the HIE market and projected industry changes. Although the HIE market grew rapidly in 2011, Chilmark notes that it remains highly volatile within a highly competitive landscape. Chilmark states that successful HIE vendors must possess a true interoperability solution for EHRs. The report commends Certify Data Systems’ ability to face this challenge.

The Chilmark Research report ranked Certify Data Systems as a tier one enterprise HIE vendor, stating that the company:

  • “Is currently seeing remarkable success in the market based on a very capable HIE solution and a vision that aligns closely with what are the real pain points and subsequently needs of the market;”
  • “Has an innovative solution that productizes deep EHR interoperability in a way that no other company is doing today;” and
  • “Has a clear product vision for a novel, innovative HIE product portfolio.”

“We are pleased to be recognized as a tier one HIE vendor by Chilmark Research," said Marc Willard, founder and CEO of Certify Data Systems. “The findings validate our position as the only HIE provider that can seamlessly connect the entire continuum of care, from stand-alone and multi-hospital health systems to small and large physician practices. The Chilmark report underscores the value of our innovative solutions and our commitment to improve the delivery of healthcare services.”

John Moore, managing partner at Chilmark Research, states, “It is hard to find fault with this company. Certify Data Systems has a clear product vision for a novel, innovative HIE product portfolio and [their] HIE solution suite is elegant in its simplicity and ability to bring up an HIE quickly with deep integration to a wide range of ambulatory EHR solutions in the market.”
