InfoGard officially received authorization on January 11, 2013, being among the first authorized by the ONC.

2014 Edition EHR Certification Criteria:

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published the test procedures, test data, and test tools to support testing and certification of EHR technology products to the 2014 Edition criteria. The new criteria build on the functionality included in the 2011 Edition criteria, adding requirements that will promote interoperability and the exchange of health information.

Highlights of 2014 Edition:

  • Interoperability requirements will enhance doctors’ ability to provide effective continuity of care.
  • A revised definition of Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) will allow more flexibility for technology developers to target specific practice settings without being burdened by additional functionality unnecessary in those settings.
  • Gap Certification will enable technology developers to update their certified product from the 2011 Edition to the 2014 Edition criteria without having to retest unchanged criteria.
