ONC Updates the 2014 Edition Test Method

Earlier today, the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT (ONC) released an update to the 2014 Edition Test Method that supports the testing and certification of health IT products used in the Medicare/Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. Specifically, the test procedure for the key “automated numerator recording/automated measure calculation” certification criterion was modified. Also updated were the test data associated with that procedure, and the test data associated with the procedure for the “data portability” criterion.

While primarily meant for testing labs and certification bodies, the 2014 Test Method is also an important resource for industry because it essentially shows how functionality will be tested against ONC’s various certification criteria.  This allows for more efficacious planning prior to product submission.
