Bedford, Mass.-based MITRE Corp. and the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) are working together to build a testing resource for the evaluation of EHRs and networks against interoperability certification criteria.

The effort, named "LAIKA," is an open source software testing framework, distributed via an Apache 2.0 open source license.

According to the organizations, this development effort will make it easier for EHR vendors to test and verify that their products support standards-based information exchange capabilities, and prepare for CCHIT certification. LAIKA will be a free and publicly available EHR testing tool with an anticipated release date of version 1.0 by March 21.
