Practice Partner, Medisoft Clinical, Lytec MD Achieve Five-Star Usability Rating from CCHIT

May 10, 2011

CCHIT rated all of its certified products and awarded its highest five-star usability rating to Practice Partner, Medisoft Clinical and Lytec MD. To determine the ratings, CCHIT selects an independent group of jurors to rate certified products on their usability because highly usable systems will increase adoption while less usable systems could require more training and decrease adoption. For this study, usability is defined as the effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction with which the intended users can achieve their tasks in the context of product use. The five-star rating signifies that:

  • All key features were discoverable and usable.
  • User efficiency would not be dramatically impeded by any of the observed usability issues.
  • All or most observed usability issues would only have the potential to cause low-level user irritation.
  • Use of system functionality that is critical to user efficiency or patient safety would not be hindered.

The five-star usability rating is displayed on each product's page on the CCHIT Web site at .
