Certification Guidance for EHR Technology Developers
Serving Health Care Providers Ineligible
for Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Payments
This guidance is meant to serve as a building block for federal agencies and stakeholders to use as they work with different communities to achieve interoperable electronic health information exchange. It identifies the 2014 Edition EHR certification criteria from the ONC HIT Certification Program that specifically focus on interoperability – to enable electronic health information to be both exchanged and subsequently used by recipients. It identifies EHR certification criteria that can open critical communication lines between eligible and ineligible health care providers in order to support broad health care goals, such as care coordination and reduced hospital readmissions.
