The agency said Friday the “ONC Health IT Certification Program: Enhanced Oversight and Accountability” final rule aims to help the ONC Health IT Certification Program support technology development in the health IT market.

The rule establishes a regulatory framework for ONC to directly review certified health IT products; focuses on corrective action plans to address issues; and provides an appeals process for health IT developers with products under review, the department said.

ONC says the rule’s other goals include to help authorize and oversee accredited testing laboratories and address public releases of identifiable surveillance results for certified health IT.
