Which EMR Systems are Certified?

The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT), one of the two entities approved for certifying electronic health records (EHR) systems, has just announced the first wave of EHR/EMR products (33 for now) officially achieving Stage 1 certification.

The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that [a particular] EHR technology is capable of meeting the 2011/2012 criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). The certifications include Complete EHRs, which meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology and EHR Modules, which meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria. [This certification] does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nor does it guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
