Certification Commission Names Newly Certified EHR Products for Hospitals

January 22, 2008 - The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology said today three additional electronic health record (EHR) products designed for use in acute care hospitals received CCHIT Inpatient EHR 2007 certification status, bringing the total number of certified inpatient products to nine, or an estimated 36 percent of inpatient EHR vendors.

The commission’s focus for this first year of inpatient product testing is clinician order entry (often called CPOE or “Computerized Physician Order Entry”) and medication administration capabilities (often called eMAR or “Electronic Medication Administration Record”), because this area has the lowest rate of adoption in hospitals but has been shown to offer the highest value for improvement of care.

The new CCHIT-certified products are:
- Cerner Millennium PowerChart 2007 by Cerner Corp.
- Advanced Clinical Systems, MAGIC 5.6 by Meditech Inc.
- INVISION Clinicals Version 27.0 with Siemens Pharmacy and Med Administration Check (MAK), Version 24.0 by Siemens Medical Solutions USA Inc. (pre-market conditional)

For a complete list of certified EHR products, visit The next application period for inpatient products will open Feb. 1, 2008. The 2007 application period for ambulatory and inpatient EHR products will remain open until March 31.

The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology is an independent, nonprofit organization that has been officially named by the federal government as a recognized certification body for electronic health record products. Its mission is to accelerate the adoption of health information technology by creating a credible, sustainable product certification program.
