- For Users
Procuring a certified electronic health record system is the first step to getting money from the federal government's EHR Incentive Programs. As of March 2011, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has designated six organizations as an Accredited Test and Certification Body. These organizations, known as ONC-ATCBs, are therefore qualified to test and certify EHR systems.
All six ONC-ATCBs use test procedures and criteria for EHR certification that were established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). These requirements ensure that an EHR system meets meaningful use requirements as approved by the U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services.
ICANotes meets these standards and was certified by one of the accredited organizations, The Drummond Group, as a Complete Ambulatory EHR on February 17, 2011 and as a Complete Inpatient EHR on November 1, 2012.
