Electronic health record product certifications terminated
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services today announced that two electronic health record (EHR) products, previously certified as products that may be used as part of the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, had their certifications terminated. The products do not continue to meet ONC Health IT Certification Program requirements and providers can no longer use these products to meet the requirements of the EHR Incentive Programs.
“We take our responsibility to provide appropriate oversight of certified EHR products seriously and have every expectation that users will have systems that meet the technological capabilities and requirements adopted by Health and Human Services and will take action accordingly,” said Karen DeSalvo, M.D., M.Sc., M.P.H., national coordinator for Health IT.
