Monitor Engine Health

The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology published this week a handy 69-page (!) infographic to help health IT professionals better understand the importance of using Meaningful Use-certified technology.

The interactive PDF provides information on certified techology in the following categories:

  • Electronic exchange
  • Clinical processes
  • Care coordination
  • Clinical quality measurement
  • Privacy & security
  • Patient engagement
  • Public health
  • Health IT design & performance

Electronic exchange – the category our customers and readers of this blog are most interested in – is the shortest section, listing the following methods:

  • Direct Project
  • Direct Project, Edge Protocol, and XDR/XDM

Click over to the HealthIT.gov web page to learn more about the certification standards. You can also learn more about Direct Project in our comprehensive post here.
