NIST Posts First Details on EHR Testing Methods

One of EMR and HIPAA’s regular readers, DKBerry, sent me an interesting link to the NIST Health IT Standards and Testing website. I don’t have much time to look over the details of this website since I’m about to leave town, but it looks like this is NIST’s first attempt to define the standards for EHR testing. Here’s some of the major categories they have listed:
Health IT Testing Infrastructure
Meaningful Use Test Methods
What is Conformance Testing?
Health IT Testing and Support

I welcome your comments on what’s found on the website. In fact, if someone has a little more time than I do right now, I’d certainly welcome a guest blog post summarizing what’s been made available.
