ONC Releases Second, Third Waves of Draft Test Procedures for EHR Certification

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT has released its second and third waves of draft test procedures and tools to test and certify electronic health record systems under Stage 2 meaningful use criteria.

The first wave of draft test procedures was released earlier this month. Each wave introduces new test procedures. ONC has not said how many waves there will be, but draft test procedures will be posted through October 2012.

Comments for each wave will be accepted for two weeks after the wave's initial posting date. Comments and suggestions should be submitted to ONC.Certification@hhs.gov.

After the public comment and review period of all waves, ONC will revise and finalize the test procedures. The final version is expected to be available for use in testing and certification in early 2013, according to the release.
