The Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) provides the authoritative, comprehensive listing of Complete Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and EHR Modules that have been tested and certified under the ONC HIT Certification Program, maintained by The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).
Each Complete EHR and EHR Module listed on CHPL has been tested and certified by an authorized testing and certification body against applicable standards and certification criteria adopted by the HHS Secretary. EHR technologies that have been certified under the ONC HIT Certification Program are eligible to be used for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) EHR Incentive Programs. The CHPL provides CMS EHR Certification ID for qualified products to be used in the CMS EHR Incentive Programs.
Eligible providers have the ability to use EHR technology that is certified to 2011 edition certification criteria, 2014 edition certification criteria, and a combination of 2011 and 2014 edition certification criteria to generate CMS EHR Certification ID that is submitted to CMS as part of attesting to meaningful use of certified EHR technology.
Please send suggestions and comments regarding the Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) to ONC.firstname.lastname@example.org, with "CHPL" in the subject line.
Vendors or developers with questions about their product’s listing should contact their certification body that certified their product.
UPDATE: These step-by-step instructions also would apply to providers who intend to use a certified EHR technology option identified in the Flexibility Rule, which was published by CMS on September 4, 2014. The Flexibility Rule grants flexibility to providers who are unable to fully implement 2014 Edition for an EHR reporting period in 2014 due to delays in the availability of 2014 certified EHR technology. Under the Flexibility Rule, such providers participating in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs in 2014 may use EHRs that have been certified under the 2011 Edition, a combination of the 2011 and 2014 Edition, or the 2014 Edition. More information on the Flexibility Rule may be found here.
