Today the Office of the National Coordinator published on their website the list of vendors that have been certified by HHS under the Temporary Certification Program. This will be an important resource to check to ensure your vendor has been certified and recognized by the ONC. Whether you already have an EHR system or are in the process of searching, it is critical to ensure that your vendor has a plan for certification and a plan for ensuring Meaningful Use.
Each Complete EHR and EHR Module included in the CHPL has been tested and certified by an ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ATCB), and reported to ONC by an ONC-ATCB, with reports validated by ONC. Only those EHR technologies appearing on the ONC-CHPL may be granted the reporting number that will be accepted by CMS for purposes of attestation under the EHR Incentive Programs.
The listing will be updated as additional products are certified by ONC-ATCBs and reported to ONC for validation.
