Drummond RWT Plan Due Date is November 15th
As a requirement of the 21st Century Cures Act Final Rule, health IT developers certified under the 2015 Edition must submit a Real World Test Plan for each of their certified product(s) this year. Drummond has designated a due date of Nov. 15, 2021.
In efforts to assist developers, Drummond created a pre-recorded webinar available here within our customer portal: https://drummondgroup.force.com/hcsportal/s/article/Real-World-Testing It provides additional guidance along with instructions on how to submit your RWT plan. Additional resources regarding RWT and other Cures updates also may be found within our portal.

Advisory Services for RWT – Deadline is Sept. 15
Is your organization in need of consulting services to meet the Real World Testing requirements? Drummond has established an optional fee-based service to provide customized support for health IT developers in drafting real world test plans, coordinating testing, analyzing test results, and more.
The team continues to onboard customers and will only be able to accept newly signed customers by Sept. 15 for Real World Test Plan Services. Thereafter, as a result of the test plan submission period opening this month and set to close Nov. 15, secondary Test Plan Coordination and Test Resulting and Report services will be offered beginning in January 2022.
For information regarding the current and secondary service offerings, please contact our team at RWTAdvisoryService@drummondgroup.com
The services offered by Drummond Advisory Services are separate and distinct from the Drummond Group Test Lab and Certification Body. The purpose of Drummond Advisory Services is to provide expert support and guidance for the planning, analysis, and execution of certification activities; it does not negate the steps or required actions of the certification process. Use of Drummond Advisory Services does not guarantee successful ONC Health IT testing or certification.
