Certified EHR technology

Define EHR.  What is EHR?  What does EHR stand for?

EHR is an Electronic Health Record System.  The system can securely maintain all patient information, provide reporting for all aspects of the health care industry, exchange data securely with external systems and databases and provide information used to maintain the health and well-being of employees with in organizations and companies within the United States.

DataPipe is a complete EHR solution that meets all the criteria for the 2009 government stimulus program that provides money to US companies and organizations to implement these systems.


In 2009 the stimulus package has allocated roughly 20 billion dollars to assist health clinics in the united states to adopt certified EHR technology to help manage their healthcare information and record keeping.

In order to qualify for this money an organization implementing this information management software must qualify as a “meaningful EHR user”.  The criteria to become a “meaningful EHR user” is listed below  (this is subject to change over 2009 as the government determines the qualifications for distributing funds to help support implantation of data management solutions for health care in the united states).

  • The physician must use “certified EHR technology” in a meaningful manner, including electronic prescribing. The law calls for creation of a health information technology (HIT) Policy Committee, and an HIT Standards Committee. The HIT Policy Committee will focus on development of a nationwide health information infrastructure, while the HIT Standards Committee will recommend standards, implementation specifications and certification criteria. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONCHIT) is to adopt an initial set of standards, implementation specifications and certification criteria before December 31, 2009.
  • The physician must demonstrate that the certified EHR technology is connected in a manner that provides for the electronic exchange of health information to improve the quality of health care, such as promoting care coordination.
  • The physician must submit information on clinical quality measures specified by HHS.

What is CCHIT?  Define CCHIT.

The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) is a private not-for-profit organization that serves as the recognized US certification authority for electronic health records (EHR) and their networks. CCHIT was founded in 2004 with support from three leading industry associations in healthcare information management and technology: the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the National Alliance for Health Information Technology(the Alliance). In September 2005, CCHIT was awarded a 3-year contract by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop and evaluate the certification criteria and inspection process for EHRs and the networks through which they interoperate. In October 2006, HHS officially designated CCHIT as a Recognized Certification Body (RCB).[1]
