OncoEMR version 2.7 was certified on May 28, 2014 by ICSA Labs, an Office of the National Coordinator-Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) and is compliant in accordance with the applicable criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“Our goal at Altos is to support oncology practices in preparing to successfully attest by providing advanced and intuitive software in oncology,” stated Carla Wood Balch, President/CEO of Altos Solutions. “Altos’ commitment is to proceed with ONC HIT 2014 Edition Complete EHR certification of OncoEMR to support physicians' successful attestation to Meaningful Use Stage 1 or Stage 2.”

ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, offers vendor-neutral testing and certification. 2014 Edition ONC Health IT Certification is awarded to those technologies that are capable of meeting the more rigorous testing criteria developed to support providers and hospitals who wish to demonstrate Stage 2 meaningful use, which focuses on the capability of health IT to deliver higher quality patient care and exchange clinical information securely.

OncoEMR® version 2.7’s certification number is 140084R00. ONC HIT certification conferred by ICSA Labs does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.
