The HIT Standards Committee's implementation workgroup is seeking public comment on the temporary electronic health records certification program being used to support Stage 1 of the meaningful use program.

The workgroup is looking for industry feedback on how the temporary program was established and has operated. This includes the processes for establishing the authorized testing entities, communicating testing and certification criteria, and testing and certifying EHR products.

The comment period closes on June 17 and the implementation workgroup expects about a month later to submit recommendations for the EHR certification program that will support Stage 2. More information and a comment box are available here.
