CAST releases EHR final product

LeadingAge’s Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) released its updated online E H R selection tool to help providers choose a system.

The online selection tool lets users pick the requirements they need in an EHR from a set of ten major categories of functionalities to get a short list of products that meet those requirements. New search criteria include health information exchange capabilities and a counter that shows users how many products meet their needs.

“The release of this online selection tool marks the completion of updating the EHR tools that we developed last year in response to expressed need from our members,” said Majd Alwan, Ph.D., LeadingAge senior vice president for technology and executive director of CAST. “We have received an overwhelmingly positive response to the original set of tools, and we hope the update meets evolving providers’ needs.”

CAST released its whitepaper and selection matrix in June.
