Post-Payment Audit Guidance

VENDOR INFORMATION

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) determines which EHR systems are eligible for certification. Auditors will request documentation to support AIU or MU of a certified EHR system that identifies the vendor name, product name, and version number. Additionally, providers attesting to MU must be able to demonstrate that 50 percent or more of their encounters during the EHR reporting period occurred at locations equipped a certified EHR system.

As with signing any legal document, providers should be aware of potential misinformation from third party businesses. It is ultimately the responsibility of the signer of the attestation to ensure the vendor they are using has in fact supplied a certified EHR system prior to completing the attestation. Before a provider attests, it is strongly advised that the following website be consulted to verify that the EHR is certified: https://chpl.healthit.gov/#/search.
