Certified Health IT  (Certified EHR)


After billions of dollars spent on "Certified Health IT", some challenges still remain unaddressed for Clinicians, Patients, and Developers. 

Clinicians

Need a simple way to understand the certification criteria and compare different EHRs to ensure the right fit with their workflow, specialty, and program requirements they participating in

 

Patients

Need the ability to access and share their health information electronically with ease


Developers

Need a system where developers can assure their customers that their product meets established standards and requisite functionality

The certification also needs to facilitate interoperability and relevance of the Certified Health IT for the clinicians.

Interoperability

Enable systems that exchange health information electronically in a low-cost, practical, and secure fashion instead of relying on slow, inconvenient, and expensive methods of exchange such as paper and faxes

 

Certification

Ensure provider engagement in clinical practice improvement and care coordination activities using health IT, and participation in various federal and state programs 


The Problem 


There are sixty 2015 Edition certification criteria that Health IT products can be certified for, by ONC Authorized
Certification Bodies (ONC-ACBs) after being successfully tested by an ONC-Authorized Testing Laboratory
(ONC-ATL). The certified products are then listed on the Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) which poses a unique set of challenges for Providers, EHR developers, and App develpors.

Providers

Certification Criteria Difficult to Understand

Small practices with limited time and technical expertise struggle to understand the technical details of certification criteria

It's difficult for small practices to understand what certification criteria are required for which CMS programs (MIPS, CPC+ etc.) 

Providers need a way to compare the EHRs that support their unique practice requirements and specialty (e.g. rural setting, behavioral health)


EHR Developers

Difficult to Differentiate Themselves

No way to focus on unique features around a certification criteria 

No way to highlight use of certification criteria in production

Unable to list additional product features on CHPL listing such as specialties, care-settings, and target practice sizes


App Developers

Difficult to Get API Information and Gain Visibility 

Have no simple way to search for the EHR APIs information and report issues for non-conformance

No way to communicate with other app developers to discuss common issues related to specific EHR or multiple EHRs

Lack a common marketplace to showcase their solutions that work with multiple EHRs and different specialties


What is CheckEHRâ„¢ ?


CheckEHR is a platform to connect Providers, EHR Developers, and App Developers. 

How CheckEHR Helps

Providers 

Functionality Based Search

CheckEHR makes it easy for the providers to find the functionality supported by a Certified Health IT product (EHR / Module) based on their goals.

 

Post/Read Public Reviews

Validated providers can post reviews about the Certified Health IT product they are using and read the reviews posted by others for all the certified products. 

Report Non-Conformance

If a Certified Health IT product falls short of meeting the funtionality it is certified for, the CheckEHR app guides the providers through a step-by-step process to report it, and achieve a quick resolution.

EHR Developers

Differentiate Beyond CHPL

EHRs can add information to their listing which is not available on CHPL such as product features, specialties, care-settings, and practice sizes supported. 
 

Engage on Public Forum

Validated EHR developers can respond to the providers' questions and concerns on the CheckEHR forum.   

Provide Additional Details

Highlight unique product features for a certification criteria in production; provide pricing options based on implementation models, customizations, and product integrations. 

App Developers

Access API Information

App developers can search for all the EHR APIs available and report any issues or non-conformance with ease. 
 

Showcase Apps

CheckEHR offers a space for app developers to showcase their solutions that work with multiple EHRs and specialties. 

Communicate with Peers

App developers can communicate with other app developers to discuss common issues related to specific EHR or multiple EHRs

What CheckEHR is Not

Not an ONC Service

CheckEHR uses the information about the Certified Health IT published by ONC on Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL). CheckEHR is not affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), or any of its subsidiaries or its affiliates. 

Not a Complaint Board

CheckEHR forum serves a place for Providers to ask questions about the certified product they are using, App developers to connect with other developers, and for EHR developers to provide clarification and additional information about their product not available on CHPL.
