The EHR Partners Program is a new initiative offered by the American College of Physicians to help its 125,000 members buy and install electronic health-record systems that have been certified for meeting baseline standards for functionality, security and interoperability by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology.
Participating EHR vendors are providing product and pricing information, and ACP members can also review product evaluations and use the EHR Product Selector Tool, which identifies which participating vendors match the criteria the ACP members select.
The evaluations were based on information collected from vendor responses to requests for information, an ACP member-satisfaction survey, a demonstration patterned on a patient visit, and a site visit to a physician practice using a participating vendors product. -- by Andis Robeznieks
