EHR vendors are required to conduct and report on a summative usability evaluation of their system as part of the ONC 2014 and 2015 Edition Certification(s).
In a public comment on the certification process, Drummond (one of the ONC ATCB's) stated that:
"...the usability test effort is not a small undertaking for EHR vendors. In fact, it was essentially one of the most difficult criteria to complete."
The required summative assessment cannot happen overnight, and it is important that your team allow enough time for required testing to be completed and presented to the proctor during your appointment with an ONC-ATCB.
We recommend that you allow at least 2-3 weeks in your submission timeline for the preparation, conducting and reporting of a 2014 Edition (Meaningful Use Stage 2) summative usability test.
We suggest at least 3-4 weeks in your submission timeline for the preparation, conducting and reporting of a summative usability test for the ONC 2015 Edition (MACRA/MIPS) Safety-enhanced Design Certification.
