EHR/Health Care

Drummond Group brings our years of experience into play to provide effective and efficient electronic health record (EHR) testing to healthcare information technology developers - both vendors and hospitals that create their own systems.

Accredited for the Office of the National Coordinator Health IT Certification Program as an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) and an Accredited Test Lab (ATL), Drummond Group works closely with EHR developers to test and certify solutions that providers can use to qualify for incentive funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

We leverage our testing and certification knowledge and experience to ensure our tests verify that systems are capable of meeting the meaningful use standards required to obtain incentive funds as well as the rich functionality required to move clinical care forward. We are approved to test AND certify any EHR product, ambulatory or inpatient, under the government's program.

Drummond Group tested and certified our first EHR solutions in September 2010 - and we've tested hundreds of EHRs since then. As a matter of fact, more than 1,000 of the products that we tested have received the federal government's stamp of approval and are on the Office of the National Coordinator's Certified Health IT Product List.

Our EHR program is just one of our healthcare certification initiatives. We also certify EPCS and CSOS – making us the only third-party organization to act as a certifier for all three of these healthcare initiatives. You’re in good company when you choose Drummond Group as the ACB to certify your next EHR software.
