The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), in conjunction with the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), has issued the attached request for information about the certification of health information technology (HIT). CMS and ONC seek information on electronic health records (EHR) products used for reporting electronic clinical quality measures for EHR incentive programs, the hospital inpatient quality reporting program and the physician quality reporting system. CMS and ONC request feedback on how often to require recertification, the number of clinical quality measures a certified HIT module should be required to certify to, and ways to improve testing of the modules. Comments on the request are due Feb. 1.
