NIST Develops Test Tools

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed Test Tools for conformance testing of Health IT Modules related to the 2015 Edition ONC certification criteria for electronic prescribing, immunization messaging, syndromic surveillance, and reportable laboratory results. Complementary test process documents that describe the testing actions for using these tools were also developed and are now available for a 30 day public comment period ending January 1, 2016. Please review the NIST Normative Test Process Documents for the following tools and provide all feedback to NTPD_comment@nist.gov. All test tools can be found here.
