ONC Health IT Testing and Certification

Health information technology products are an essential piece of effective health care. It’s important to take steps to ensure patient data is protected and to verify the correct functioning of the software in order to provide effective patient care.

Scientists look at products


The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) Health Information Technology (IT) Certification Program supports certification of various types of software for use in doctors’ offices, clinics and hospitals. It’s a voluntary conformity assessment program that demonstrates your commitment to accurate software execution, patient privacy and information security. We can guide you through the complete process, from understanding the requirements to testing and certification.

Our ability to perform testing and certification eliminates the need to contract with multiple organizations to achieve certification and delivers the excellent customer service experience expected from us. We maintain a number of accreditations to support your ONC testing and certification objectives: 

  • American National Standards Institute (ANSI) (ID #1046)
  • Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC-HIT)
  • Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
