MU3 (2015 ONC Certification) Progress

Hi,

Time to start the next chapter in certification, which is the 2015 ONC Certification (previously called MU3). Currently in the planning/analysis stages and the wiki page to track this project is here:

Hi,

Have the barometer up along with listing of the criteria(of which can open a new wiki page for them if needed). Now it’s time to do the analysis of each item to see where we stand (the best way to do this is to go through the testing script link above the barometer for the specific item and see if OpenEMR can do it). Also will be helpful to identify the gap items since those items are a free pass. Also good to identify the optional items and the non-ambulatory items, which can then remove from the barometer:

Anybody can feel free to participate in this :slight_smile:

Since MU3 is another major effort, would it make sense for it to get one or more categories of its own? Ideally you would want to look up issues searchable at criterion level. It is not clear if this site supports hierarchies. Instead of jumping to wiki, this forum may provide a comprehensive platform for developers.

On a related note, a funding barometer can work better than a general appeal on various pages.

Will think about breaking this out to it’s own category. We can also use a 2015-onc-cert tag which would allow complete integration regardless of what category a particular topic falls under. Also, search shouldn’t be a problem on Discourse - it should far out power anything that Sourceforge offered.

Hi,
Recommend taking a minimal approach first (such as perhaps a subtag) and escalating from there as needed. Also seems that most are just interested in the barometer.

To plan for using the subtags, what would be a good subtag if for example discuss item ‘a1’?

Typically a project manager would decide these things based on how teams are organized. If we make the role of different forums clearer, perhaps the tags would become self-evident.

Hi,

Looks like using a tag for each onc-2015 item will be an effective way to track stuff. For example, here would be all posts regarding item a1: https://community.open-emr.org/tags/intersection/2015-onc-cert/2015-onc-cert-a1

Have placed appropriate links to these forums on the ONC-2015 project wiki page (also placed wiki page links for each item just in case the developer wishes to use that):
