The full news release can be found here


August 1, 2017OntarioMD's EMR Certification Program is now accepting new EMR product entrants.  Vendor's wishing to obtain EMR certification for their EMR product should review the details of the process for EMR Validation.  



July 4, 2017 - As of August 1st, 2017, Certification for Primary Care EMR offerings will be open to new entrants not previously certified.

Unlike previous certification opportunities, the period through which new entrants can apply for certification will not be time limited. OntarioMD is moving to an “Open” Certification model which will enable new entrants to apply at any time.

EMR offerings that are currently certified will remain certified subject to their ongoing alignment to the applicable EMR Specification(s) and their obligations under the current EMR Certification Agreement.

Historically, OntarioMD's EMR Certification Program was focused on enabling the adoption of EMR technology by physicians. Now, with over 14,000 physicians using an EMR certified by OntarioMD, the focus has shifted from adoption to optimization, including access to provincial EHR Solutions and Services, enhanced tooling, data migration and the exchange of information with EMRs. OntarioMD has subsequently been working on evolving its EMR Certification Program to better align with these objectives. While the familiar components will remain: specifications, validation, certification and compliance, emphasis will shift to optimization. New opportunities for EMR products to be certified by OntarioMD in the Ontario EMR landscape will be available later this year.

More details on our EMR Certification Program will be published shortly.
