EHR Facility Status Map and Table
In April 2011, the IHS Resource and Patient Management System (RPMS) was certified according to standards established by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). This accomplishment allowed Eligible Professionals (EPs) and Eligible Hospitals (EHs) to participate in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) EHR Incentive Program. With the release of the 2014 ONC Rule and the 2014 CMS Stage 2 Rule, the scope of requirements for demonstrating Meaningful Use were greatly increased, and new certified electronic health technology (CEHRT) became necessary.
As of August 22, 2014, the 2014 RPMS EHR was certified according to the 2014 ONC standards.
