2022 Real-World Testing Plan
The 21st Century Cures Act Final Rule mandates that health IT developers participating in the ONC Health IT Certification Program must test the real-world use of health IT for interoperability. This is accomplished through the Real World Testing condition and maintenance of certification requirement, which requires submission of a testing plan and subsequent results for specified certification criteria on an ongoing, annual basis. Starting in 2021, eClinicalWorks submits a test plan to its ONC-Authorized Certification Body by November 15 of each calendar year. Once approved by the ONC-ACB, the plan is used to evaluate real-world usage of the specified interoperability criteria during the following calendar year. Results are compiled at the end of the year and submitted to the ONC-ACB for review. Below you will find eClinicalWorks’ approved test plans and results for each testing cycle.
