New CMS and ONC Tool to Help Meet Transitions of Care Measure

Written by Kaitlyn Houseman | February 21, 2014

Are you a provider who is demonstrating Stage 2 of meaningful use? If so, a new CMS and ONC tool called the Randomizer will let you exchange data with a Test EHR in order to meet measure #3 of the Stage 2 transitions of care requirement.  Measure #3 requires at least one summary of care document sent electronically to a recipient with a different EHR vendor or to a CMS test EHR. Click here to learn more about the Randomizer application

To use the tool to meet this measure, you must register with EHR Randomizer. Once registered, it will pair your EHR technology with a different test EHR from the list of authorized systems. You must then send a Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (CCDA) summary of care record to the Test EHR. CMS and ONC recommend that you send a test CCDA document that does not contain actual patient information.
