The National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) announces the accreditation of five laboratories in the HIT LAP. Information regarding these accredited laboratories can be located in the directory of accredited laboratories located on the NVLAP webpage, www.nist.gov/nvlap .
Laboratories accredited in this program perform functional and conformance testing of electronic health record products to nationally-recognized meaningful use requirements for healthcare IT products. The HIT LAP was established following the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) Permanent Certification Program for Health Information Technology (HIT), which was established by regulation in a final rule published in the Federal Register on January 7, 2011.
