CCHIT has been recognized by ONC as an Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) for EHRs. It is authorized to offer HHS certification for complete EHRs that meet all of the Stage 1, 2011/2012 HHS/ONC criteria, as well as certification for modular EHR products that meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria. Drummond Group Inc. has also been approved to be an ONC-ATCB. It is eligible to certify Complete EHRs and all EHR Modules for both ambulatory and inpatient settings.
CCHIT plans to launch its authorized HHS certification program on Sept. 20 at 1 p.m. Eastern time with a Town Call Web-cast describing its application and testing process. The organization will take new health IT developer applications immediately after at http://cchit.org and the first group of HHS certified complete EHRs and EHR modules will be announced “within weeks of that launch.” More information about the Town Call will be available at http://www.cchit.org/towncalls.
