No. You are responsible for your own computer systems.
FreeDOM was ONC-ATCB certified in accordance with Stage 1 Meaningful Use (MU) criteria. We learned, however, was that MU was not on the radar of most small practices. Meaningful Use is difficult to understand and laborious to implement for a payoff that is, for most small practices, not worth the effort.
MU Stage 1 expires at the end of 2013, and Stage 2 now goes into affect. Stage 2 places an even greater burden on providers. As of now, FreeDOM is not certified for Stage 2. However, the FreeDOM EHR was specifically designed for smaller offices and physicians that want to maintain a traditional work flow. FreeDOM’s EHR is easy to learn and easy to use, and is fully integrated with our practice management system.
If you have a separate EMR system that you would like to continue to use, we offer the ability to interface with that software vendor to automatically move demographic and clinical data between systems.

FreeDOM receives your claim information, then “scrubs” the data using our proprietary claim processing engine, ClaimHub. ClaimHub compares your data to the information the specific payer requires. If the claim is missing information the payer requires, you’ll know immediately so you can correct it before the payer even sees the claim. This means faster reimbursement with all payers because your claims are filed accurately and processed more efficiently with fewer rejections.
Absolutely. All claim types are Edifecs-certified to ensure they are HIPAA-compliant. FreeDOM contains all HIPAA datasets and was designed from the ground up to comply with HIPAA regulations. See our HIPAA page for more information.
