CCHIT-certified EHR systems for meaningful use

This tip lists CCHIT-certified electronic health record systems. CCHIT is one of several groups that have received ONC approval to test and certify EHR software for meaningful use.

Under the meaningful use final rule, hospitals and other eligible health care providers must use a certified electronic health record system in order to qualify for the EHR Incentive Program initially outlined in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. These EHR systems must be certified by an Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ATCB), which in turn must be approved by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).

The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology, or CCHIT, was named an ONC-ATCB on Aug. 30 and announced its first certified EHR systems on Oct. 1. This tip, which will be updated periodically, lists CCHIT-certified hospital and eligible provider products that are capable of meeting Stage 1 meaningful use requirements. (Lists also are available for other recognized ONC-ATCBs -- the Drummond Group Inc., and coming soon, InfoGard Laboratories Inc.)
