The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released the first of four installments of a new health IT test method and related software designed to help IT vendors test their products and ensure basic functionality.
NIST and HHS are working with vendors, standards organizations, certification bodies and system implementers to develop a suite of software tools to support the health IT testing infrastructure, it says.
Testing laboratories will use the tools in the testing component of the certification programs established by ONC, which says it will utilize NIST’s National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program to accredit testing laboratories.
