AUSTIN, TXDrummond Group Inc. (DGI) announced that, after months of consideration and a thorough review of the recently published NPRM on EHR Certification Programs, it will be applying to be an ONC-ATCB this year.
“The HHS and ONC have provided a historic EHR testing and certification framework.” says Rik Drummond, CEO Drummond Group. “The basic test criteria and test tools used will be used in every testing organization to ensure the same level of assurance and interoperability in EHR solutions. Complete EHRs or EHR Modules tested and certified by Drummond Group will be able to perfectly satisfy Meaningful Use requirements for the EHR Incentive Programs.”
Drummond Group is working on internal efforts to prepare for the EHR testing later this year. Those efforts will be metered by the progress at NIST and the ONC. To keep EHR vendors updated on the status of our certification program, Drummond Group has created an EHR blog. Drummond Group EHR Blog
