ONC Announces EHRs Approved for Meaningful Use

84074530If you’re in the market for an EHR system, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) — this is the division of Health and Human Services making computer-related decisions for docs — has released its first list of approved and complete EHRs that have been determined to meet the requirements of “meaningful use.”

According to the ONC, “Only those EHR technologies appearing on the [ONC list] may be granted the reporting number that will be accepted by CMS for purposes of attestation under the EHR incentive program.”

As you know, healthcare providers must meet “meaningful use” in order to qualify for incentive funding allotted under the HITECH Act.  This list of 36 EHRs is a good starting point in your search for a compliant and approved system.

Ironically, the ONC’s website does not yet list all of the approved EHRs.  When that site is updated, it will be a good resource for your EHR shopping needs.  In the meantime, here’s the complete list of currently approved Complete EHRs, which are certified to meet ALL applicable certification criteria:

  • ABEL Medical Software Inc. ABELMed EHR – EMR / PM 11 (Eligible Provider)
