The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology has introduced online resources to help health IT professionals comply with new electronic health information system standards.
Robert Anthony, director of the ONC Office of Technology’s certification and testing division, said in a blog post published Monday that the online resources can be accessed through the Cures Act Rule website.
Resources include information on key dates as well as application programming interface requirements in compliance with the Health IT Certification Program Final Rule and the 21st Century Cures Act.
The website also covers topics such as compliance date extensions, health IT certification and test procedures. Other items include updates to the 2015 Edition Certification Criteria, Certification Companion Guides, ONC clarifications and other educational materials.
