CCHIT Certifies Allscripts EHR Products
That third-party reporting system, however, will be required under ARRA rules to be ARRA-certified as an EHR module, otherwise the hospital will have to certify the reporting module themselves - a time-consuming and expensive process, Allscripts said.
Three clinical components of Allscripts Sunrise 5.5 EHR were certified by CCHIT in July. Those components included: Sunrise Clinical Manager 2011 Suite, Version 5.5, Sunrise Ambulatory Care 2011 Suite, Version 5.5 and Sunrise Emergency Care 2011 Suite, Version 5.5.
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Authorized Testing and Certification Body 2011/2012 certification program certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by HHS for either eligible provider or hospital technology.
Companies offering ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certified EHR modules may return to test additional criteria and certify their products as Complete EHRs later.
CMS and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology announced that registration will begin January 3, 2011, for eligible providers hoping to participate in the Medicare EHR incentive program.
