Update to Surescripts e-Prescribing Alternative Test Method

[vc_row][vc_column][movedo_single_image image=”23030″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) announced recently that Surescripts will not seek to be approved as an alternative certification pathway to demonstrate conformity for the new 2015 Edition Cures Act Final Rule requirements for the e-prescribing criterion 170.315(b)(3), updating to the NCPDP 2017071 standard.

For products certified to 170.315(b)(3) prior to Jan. 1, 2020, conformance to the updated 2015 Edition Cures e-Prescribing certification criterion may be done through self-testing in accordance with the ONC Electronic Prescribing Cures Update Test Procedure. Developers will be required to submit test results to their ONC-Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) and include screenshots demonstrating successful validation of test cases. Results may be submitted to Drummond Group through the quarterly attestation process or by registering online here.

For products not certified to 170.315(b)(3) as of Jan. 1, 2020, a live test session will need to be scheduled with an ONC-Authorized Test Lab (ONC-ATL). Developers may register online with Drummond to get started.

Note all products certified to the e-Prescribing 170.315(b)(3) criterion must adopt the updated standard and certify to such changes by Dec. 31, 2022.
