ONC Test Scripts,  Interoperability Test Guide, Security Test Guide and more

The ONC approved test procedures arranged in a more convenient format to make preparing for and taking the test more efficient, optional test data to help vendors prepare and demonstrate their systems, and video guidance on how to approach test procedures including interoperability and security.

My Certifications Dashboard

You can prepare an analysis of how well your technology already meets ONC criteria and determine if you want to test and certify a complete EHR or just a module, and calculate the fee. My Certifications helps you manage your current and future certifications including requirements for filing updates.

Online FAQs, Forums and Webinars

Further searchable guidance on how to prepare for testing, taking advantage of CCHIT's testing experience, with weekly webinars to deal with common thorny issues.

Get Certified

This is where the actual work of testing and certification begins. It includes virtual, Web-based testing of your EHR technology by CCHIT's testers using ONC criteria and standards and the ONC approved test procedures required by federal rules. Once testing is completed, those results will be evaluated by CCHIT's certification management team to prepare a recommendation for certification of your product. Once certified, CCHIT's marketing team will guide you in the use of ONC required certification terms and our seals as you take your certification to market.
