About the ONC HIT Certification Program

Starting from Version 0, only the specified OneConnect Health IT modules follow the ONC 2015 Edition. The ONC HIT Certification Program is a voluntary program established by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, aimed at certifying health IT solutions. This program aligns with initiatives like the Promoting Interoperability Programs (formerly known as the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs), which eligible providers and hospitals use to secure funding, in addition to supporting the 21st Century Cures Act. Certified health IT usage has also expanded to cover various government and non-government programs. Reference to the certification and a list of OneConnect’s current certified modules can be found here.
