It’s been awhile since I’ve totaled the number of certifications listed on the ONC Certified Health IT Product List. Since it’s a slow news day it seemed like a good time to pull out my trusty calculator and total them up once again.
We last did this back in mid-December and at that time the number of certifications issued was 187. The tally as of yesterday is 329, or an additional 142 in the past 31 business days. Put another way that’s nearly 5 certifications issued per day during that time frame. Any bets on what the final total will be?
Of the certifications issued to date 234 have been certified for use in ambulatory practices with the remaining 95 being classified for use in inpatient practices.
Unchanged from December is that all certifications are still being issued by only three ONC-ATCBs. Those three are CCHIT, the Drummond Group and InfoGard, Inc. The breakdown of certifications issued is below:
The ONC list is updated frequently so we keep a link to the list on the EHR Resources section on the right side of EMR Daily News.
Remember, you can find information, advise and product demonstrations on many of the EHRs listed on the Certified Health IT Product List from our partner Software Advantage. The advise they provide is without cost to you. If they are able to help you identify a certified EMR product that is a good fit for your organization, they (and we) earn a small fee from the product vendor.
