Certified Health IT Products List (CHPL)

D5. What does "Additional Software Required” mean?

"Additional Software Required" includes any additional software that a certified Complete EHR or Health IT Module relied upon to demonstrate its compliance with a certification criterion or criteria adopted by the Secretary of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

D6. What is the difference between a Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) Product Number and a CMS EHR Certification ID?

Each certified Health IT Module on the CHPL has a “CHPL Product Number” assigned to it by the ONC-Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) that certified the product. The CMS EHR Certification Identification Number is a number generated by the CHPL that represents a Health IT Module or combination of Health IT Modules, which are used for reporting EHR Incentive Programs.

D8. Who do I contact with questions or concerns about the Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) or if my CHPL listing is incorrect?

Developers with questions about their Certified Health IT Module should contact the ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) or ONC-Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) that certified their Health IT Module.

If the ONC-ACB cannot or does not address your issue, please contact the ONC Health IT Certification Program at ONC.Certification@hhs.gov.
