Clinical Quality Measure EHR Certification
Certification of Electronic Health Record (EHR) technologies requires that EHR software products and EHR modules be tested, as applicable, for the capability to accurately capture, calculate and report the Clinical Quality Measure results. ONC has commissioned the development of the open source Cypress certification testing tool. Cypress has already encoded the measure logic required in a software implementation. The process for submitting the Cypress tool for official approval to be used in the ONC Certification Program is currently under way. The Cypress website has been and will remain updated to reflect the testing initiative.
