NIST updates draft test procedures page for medication reconciliation

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, there’s been some good progress by NIST to create meaningful use test procedures for certifying bodies that will need to evaluate EMRs. They already have 8 test documents for various MU criteria including up-to-date problem list, active mdications list, active allergy list, vital signs, BMI calculations, growth charts plotting, smoking status tracking, and (as of today) medication reconciliation.

I contacted the nice folks at NIST and wondering if they’d have an RSS feed or something for the changes — they said they liked the idea and would put something into place as soon as they could. Meanwhile, I’ve been watching the changes since I have to and thought I would alert you to changes they made today.
