Health IT

ICSA Labs tests and certifies Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology for the Office of the National Coordinator’s Health IT Certification Program. The Program was established to ensure Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) was available for adoption by healthcare providers and hospitals and would support activities related to the meaningful use of EHRs. Use of CEHRT is also a pre-requisite for providers and hospitals to receive EHR incentive payments. Certification of EHR technology by ICSA Labs reassures healthcare providers that the product they adopt has been evaluated for conformance to specific federal criteria related to clinical functionality, interoperability, information security, and patient privacy. ICSA Labs is a NIST NVLAP Accredited Health IT Testing Laboratory (Lab Code 200-697) and an ANSI Accredited and ONC-Authorized Certification Body for EHR Technology.
