InfoGard Laboratories, the nation’s first accredited IT security testing laboratory, is approved by the Health and Human Services, Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT as an ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) for the certification of Complete EHRs and EHR Modules for both ambulatory and inpatient settings. –Source
And now there are three official ONC-ATCB for EMR vendors looking to get their EHR software certified. Looks like InfoGard has been doing NIST certifications for a long time now and EHR certification will just be another certification for them.
Info Gard will be the third officially approved ONC-ATCB alongside Drummond Group and CCHIT which were announced previously. There’s also been rumors that Weno Healthcare is trying to become an ONC-ATCB as well.
Maybe I’m just missing it, but I wasn’t able to find other details on InfoGard’s EHR certification plans, pricing, and timeline. If someone else finds it, please let me know. It’s a little disappointing that their press release didn’t include a link to this type of information like Drummond Group and CCHIT did.
