Self-testing is one way to prepare for HIE certification

Self-testing is one way to prepare for HIE certification

Date: Aug 02, 2013

This webcast features Dennis Wilson, director of technology and testing for the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT). Here he explains how CCHIT, an ONC-authorized testing and certification body that certifies EHR technology for the HITECH Act, has developed HIE certification testing for three different environments. Wilson covers the main differences between an HIE-certified community, HIE-certified direct and an HIE-certified network.

CCHIT tests vendor products and facilities' HIE installations. In both cases, the testing body runs a test in their automated environment and compares it to the vendor's or facility's previously performed self-test. CCHIT has an HIE Everywhere portal that provides information to potential applicants that are preparing for the HIE certification.
