ONC Revokes Two EHR Certifications

Erin McCann | Government Health IT | April 26, 2013

Two electronic health record systems, previously certified under the EHR Incentive Program, failed recently to meet industry requirements and have had their certifications revoked, ONC officials announced Thursday. As a result, National Coordinator for Health IT Farzad Mostashari, MD, said providers can no longer meet meaningful use requirements using these products

EHRMagic-Ambulatory and EHRMagic-Inpatient, both developed by Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based EHRMagic, are the first-ever EHRs to have their certifications revoked, ONC told Healthcare IT News. The EHRs must be certified by a certification body authorized by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT before regaining certification. To date, "no providers have attested using these products," wrote ONC's Peter Ashkenaz, in an emailed statement.
