The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has revoked the certification for two electronic health record products developed by EHRMagic Inc. of Santa Fe Springs, CA, after select requirements were retested and failed, the Department of Health and Human Services announced today. National Coordinator for Health IT Farzad Mostashari, M.D., said the EHRMagic-Ambulatory and EHRMagic-Inpatient products do not meet ONC standards and providers cannot use them to meet the requirements of the Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive programs. “We and our certification bodies take complaints and our follow-up seriously,” he said. “By revoking the certification of these EHR products, we are making sure that certified electronic health record products meet the requirements to protect patients and providers.” The HHS announcement did not address how providers that have purchased these previously certified products should proceed.
