|Surescripts to Certify E-Prescribing EHR modules||| Print ||
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has approved Surescripts to verify that an EHR module used by physicians for e-prescribing meets the federal government's meaningful-use standards and certification criteria, as well as the privacy and security standards.
Surescripts is one of six groups authorized under ONC's temporary certification program to test and approve EHRs. The others are the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology, the Drummond Group, InfoGard Labs, ICSWA Labs, and SLI Global Solutions. All but Surescripts can certify a complete EHR, as well as specific EHR modules.
