(a) The certification criteria adopted in this subpart apply to the testing and certification of Complete EHRs and EHR Modules.
(b) When a certification criterion refers to two or more standards as alternatives, the use of at least one of the alternative standards will be considered compliant.
(c) Complete EHRs and EHR Modules are not required to be compliant with certification criteria or capabilities specified within a certification criterion that are designated as optional.
(d) In § 170.314, all certification criteria and all capabilities specified within a certification criterion have general applicability (i.e., apply to both ambulatory and inpatient settings) unless designated as “inpatient setting only” or “ambulatory setting only.”
(1) “Inpatient setting only” means that the criterion or capability within the criterion is only required for certification of EHR technology designed for use in an inpatient setting.
(2) “Ambulatory setting only” means that the criterion or capability within the criterion is only required for certification of EHR technology designed for use in an ambulatory setting.
