InfoGard-certified EHR systems for meaningful use

This tip lists certified EHR systems tested by InfoGard Laboratories, one of several organizations approved to test and certify electronic health record software.

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 and detailed further in the meaningful use final rule. 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).

InfoGard Laboratories, based in San Luis Obispo, Calif., was named an ONC-ATCB on Sept. 24 and afterwards released its first list of certified EHR systems. This tip, which will be updated periodically, lists the hospital and eligible-provider products that the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) has tested and certified as capable of meeting Stage 1 of the meaningful use requirements. (Lists also are available for the other recognized ONC-ATCBs that have certified EHR systems -- CCHIT and the Drummond Group Inc.)
