Completion Barometer

  • This barometer is tracking the progress of the 2015 ONC Ambulatory EHR Certification (ie. Stage 3 MU) project. See below Certification Criteria section for criteria titles and further details on progress tracking.
  • The below items were chosen as the minimum to support ONC 2015 certification with CEHRT (although note CEHRT is dependent on CMS) and CURES.

Legend Description:
  • Not Yet Analyzed - Has not been analyzed yet.
  • Not Ready - Not ready for certification testing and waiting for somebody to work on this.
  • Not Ready (actively working on) - Not ready for certification testing, but are actively working on this.
  • Ready - Ready for certification testing. ( F means is Finalized (has been checked thoroughly and has an associated wiki page detailing why it is ready) and officially ready ready to self-declare or test.)
  • Failed Test - Issues found during certification testing.
  • Certification Pass - Passed certification and in official codebase.
  • * - Self-declaration (this involves self-declaration rather than formal testing with the testing body).

Instance Specific Requirements Tracking

This will track the settings that a instance needs to use to fulfill ONC 2015. These instructions will go into the install/upgrade instruction sets.
  • You are required to register your Organization name and FHIR endpoint with the OpenEMR Foundation by sending an email with this information to hello@open-emr.org with subject of 'ONC 2015 registration'. This information will be posted on OpenEMR_7.0.0_API#Service_Base_URLs, which is a requirement for ONC 2015 (the OpenEMR Foundation is required to post this information within 10 days of your request).
  • Required global settings
  • Administration->Globals->Security->Hash Algorithm for Authentication->SHA512 (ONC 2015)
  • Administration->Globals->Security->Hash Algorithm for Token->SHA512 (ONC 2015)
  • Administration->Globals->Logging->Enable Audit Log Encryption->On
  • Administration->Globals->Connectors->Enable OpenEMR Standard FHIR REST API->On
  • To ensure optimal security, users are required to run their OpenEMR client web browser on a end-user device that encrypts entire drive(s) with AES based encryption algorithm.
  • To ensure optimal security, users are required to use a FIPS compliant cipher for the HTTPS/SSL browser connection.
  • To ensure accurate time, server are required to set up a Network Time Protocol server that supports version 4 Network Time Protocol (NTP) as defined by RFC 5905.
  • For users NOT NEEDING ONC 2015, then would consider setting following global setting to improve performance
  • Administration->Globals->Security->Audit Logging SELECT Query->Off
  • Administration->Globals->Security->Printing Log Option->No logging

Notes

Below is how we derived the items to include in the main barometer:
  • Based on analysis incorporating finalized proposed changes and Cures: drop a6, a7, a8, a11, b4, b5; revise b1, b2, b3, b7, b8, b9, c3, d2, d3, d10, e1, f5, g6, g9; new b10, d12, d13, g10.(note goal is to only list the required items)
  • Note the following OR items: a2 or a3, g1 or g2, h1 or h2
  • EXTRAPOLATED EHR gap items are a1, a2 or a3. EHR non-gap items are a5, a9, a14, b1, b6, c1, g7, g8, g9, h1 or h2.
  • EXTRAPOLATED Bonus items need for MIPS are a12, e3, g1 or g2, c2, c3, (c4 is optional).
  • Above 2 lists distill to a1, a2 or a3, a5, a9, a12, a14, b1, b6, c1, c2, c3, e3, g1 or g2, g7, g8, g9, h1 or h2
  • Cures specific items are: a1, a2 or a3, a5, a9, a14, b1(standard or cures(cures is mandatory after 5/2/22)), c1, g7, g8 or g10(g10 is mandatory after 5/2/22), g9(standard or cures(cures is mandatory after 5/2/22)), h1 or h2
  • New distilled list including cures stuff that is mandatory after 5/22/22: a1, a2 or a3, a5, a9, a12, a14, b1(cures version), b6, c1, c2, c3, e3, g1 or g2, g7, g9(cures version), g10(cures), h1 or h2
  • Dependency items also needed are b10, d1-d9, d12, d13, g3-g6(g6 is considered completed when b1 and b6 is completed)
  • Final listing (above 2 lists combined): a1, a2 or a3(will do a2), a5, a9, a12, a14, b1(cures version), b6, b10, c1, c2, c3, d1-d9, d12, d13, e3, g1 or g2(will do g2), g3-g6(g6 is considered completed when b1 and b6 is completed), g7, g9(cures version), g10(cures), h1 or h2(will do h1)
  • Final adjustment after discussion with testing body: e3 not needed, g8 is needed, no more gap certification eligibility
  • The real Final listing (above 2 lists integrated): a1, a2 or a3(will do a2), a5, a9, a12, a14, b1(cures version), b6, b10, c1, c2, c3, d1-d9, d12, d13, g1 or g2(will do g2), g3-g6(g6 is considered completed when b1 and b6 is completed), g7, g8, g9(cures version), g10(cures), h1 or h2(will do h1)
  • Since doing CURES.
  • Complete b10, so can drop b6.
  • Complete g10, so can drop g8.
  • Research if following items are not part of BASE (ie. are they required for CEHRT and MIPS and CURES): a12, b10, c2, c3, g2

Redo analysis from scratch (to ensure on right path)

  • a1, a2 or a3, a5, a9, a14, b1, c1, g7, g9, g10, h1 or h2
  • Dependencies for above items:
  • d1, d2, d3, d4, d5, d6, d7, d8, d9, d12, d13, g3, g4, g5, g6

  • Items that can drop:
  • b10
  • Items that plan to add on first cert:
  • e3
  • Items that plan to add on second cert (per SN analysis):
  • a3 (not clear and plan d/w SN), a10, a13, b2, b3, e1 (was gonna do this on first round, but looks like significant work may be involved), e2 (not clear and plan d/w SN),
