ONC Releases Request for Information

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT released a request for information (RFI) on criteria to measure the performance of certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT), as required by the 21st Century Cures Act. Feedback received will be used to inform subsequent discussions among stakeholders and future work toward the development of reporting criteria under the EHR Reporting Program.

ONC’s request for information focuses on the Cures Act’s five mandatory criteria associated with the EHR Reporting Program: security; interoperability; usability and user-centered design; conformance to certification testing; and other categories—as appropriate—to measure the performance of certified EHR technology.

Comments will be accepted until October 17 at 5 p.m. ET.

The RFI is available here.
