ChartLogic EHR is an ambulatory electronic healthcare record system designed to work in physicians offices or clinics.


ChartLogic EHR was established in 1994 by Brad Melis, under the name of Task Technologies. Melis teamed up with pediatrician Dr Bruce Jorgenson who wanted a technology that would not slow down his practice. Task Technologies/ChartLogic was born by incorporating a sophisticated voice recognition software that has "voice driven commands, dictation, specialty specific vocabulary, microphones, hardware and training - all optimized to achieve highly accurate voice recognition and time saving shortcuts from the start."


Chartlogic made it possible to extend their system with iAchieve EMR, a web-based EHR system. It has several functionalities that make it a very useful tool in the hands of physicians and nurses alike. The system enables a physician to prescribe a medication using the ePrescribe functionality which sends a an electronic prescription to pharmacies. Moreover, advanced reporting allows a clinic to function efficiently by automatically report results to trials conducted or other studies. The system also includes a billing functionality that keeps a balance for each patient and record. Concerning records, the system allows a physician to enter new notes using a pen tablet associated with a handwriting recognition software. During a physical exam, a physician can check and uncheck checkboxes in a fast and time-saving manner. Moreover, vitals can be graphed to allow better understanding of the trend and status of a patient's vitals.

Meaningful Use Transition

ChartLogic has implemented a process by which “meaningful use” can be taken advantage of with an ease of transition for all healthcare facilities utilizing their software system. Meaningful use is an incentive program established by the government, as a part of HITECH 2009, which allows hospitals the opportunity for monetary gain from either Medicare or Medicaid for implementing EHR systems. By breaking this implementation process into stages, ChartLogic is taking a role in transitioning hospitals into complete EHR establishment, whereby a minimum of two years must be spent on each stage. [3] In March 2014,Chartlogic EHR 8.1 achieved the ONC-HIT 2014 edition certification.It was certified as a Complete EHR Ambulatory by the Drummond Group, an ONC-ACB( Authorized Certification Body)(4).The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) Certification Program helps to ensure that Electronic Health Record (EHR) technologies meet the standards and certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to allow providers and hospitals achieve meaningful use and participate in the CMS EHR Incentive Programs (5)

Stage 1 has a series of 15 core objectives that must be met to some degree. Each objective has a minimum percentage use value that must be matched or exceeded in order to consider that objective as being met. Stage 2 has a total of 17 core objectives. For the most part, this stage continues to implement previous standards and objectives in the same manner as before, using percentage use values that must be matched or exceeded. However, there are an increased number of particular usage criteria per objective. Stage 3 requirements have yet to be established. [3]
