Topics Pilot Tasks for SITE team Pilot Contacts and timeline Summary and Next Steps 7
Testing Process 1.After the kickoff, Pilots will receive email from EHR Randomizer Tool team with steps to create new account and register the Test EHR 2.ONC Implementation and testing team will register as provider on the Randomizer tool 3.Send Direct Message (with test CCDA) to each of the pilot Test EHR 4.SITE team will validate receipt of response matches the process described in the registration 5.Submit report (pass/fail) for each Test EHR and feedback on tool usage to ONC/NIST 6.Pilots can submit individual feedback and/or joint report. Pilot Coordinator can assist in logistics 8
Summary and Next Steps Q1: Are there additional requirement for documentation from Test EHR for successful exchange? Q2: Should there be requirements for Test EHR to be member of scalable trust community? Q3: Do you suggest any updates to the Developer Participant and Test Instructions requirements? Q4: Are there any changes that need to be made towards Test EHR registration using the EHR Randomizer Tool? 9
Thanks! Questions? Pilot Coordinator POC: Becky Angeles Email: firstname.lastname@example.org@esacinc.com 10
Pilot Testing Notes and Feedback from SITE Team EHR Randomizer Tool URL used by the SITE Team: https://ehr- randomizer.nist.gov:14081/ehr-randomizer-app/#/homehttps://ehr- randomizer.nist.gov:14081/ehr-randomizer-app/#/home EHR Randomizer Tool Website Feedback: – Not Intuitive to click (because no hand or other icons that are typically used in web pages) and providers may not understand if they should/should not click on something on the page. – Goal Tab: Not enough information to describe what the goals are clearly. – Architectural Overview Tab It might be good to combine this with the goal tab and describe the goals more clearly. Suggest to have Goal Tab to be first and the Provider Workflow tab to be something that a provider can access by clicking the tab. – Provider Workflow: Steps need to be better described because providers may not know the language and the terms used on the page. Also having the Goals and Overview on the home page may help to educate providers. Step showing downloading a public certificate which is never done in Direct. Public Certificates are always discovered. 11
Provider Registration Process 12 I think adding a tool tip or something on the purpose of the email, username would help the provider.
Provider Registration Process Contd 13 1. No Feedback is provided after accepting the agreement and submit account creation information, dont know if the account creation succeeded/failed ? 2. It would help to describe some confirmation and say something about What is the next step ? 3. After some time (Within a minute) the Create Account page comes back with blank fields even though the account is created, misleading the provider to potentially recreate the account. 4. Suggest providing feedback upon account creation and ask the user to login and proceed to the next phase. 5. There should be some kind of a work flow or something to tell the user where he is in the process, Use the Provider Workflow and remind the provider what he/she have completed and what remains to be done. 6. I checked my email before I did anything just out of curiosity and I received the following: Dear nbashyam Your account has been successfully created. Your username is: nbashyam Thank you very much The ehr-randomizer Team ----- The above information is not very useful, we should craft some message to tell the provider what to do. Also the Email is from Fred instead of a preferred NIST Organization inbox
Provider Registration Process Contd 14 7. I was on the Create Account Page when I logged in and even after I logged in, the screen displays CreateAccount - Why would we create an account once the user is logged in already ? 8. Home Page shows the Provider Workflow - Dont know what to do or where to enter the information that I need to enter, additional guidance might be useful for providers.
Other Web Pages: 15 SELECTED My CEHRTs 1. Timezone dropdown should be really simplified (Africa and other places are listed which I dont think are relevant for MU) --- Should provide information on where to find CHPL ID and how to obtain Id. 2. Developer Dropdown has a list of companies which is very small, Dont know what this means Because I am in the provider workflow and it does not seem to make sense to me, the name or label should be changed to CEHRTs maybe using CHPL 3. The label NEW on the left is not intuitive and it seems out of place.. (put some text around it and guide the provider) 4.Request a Match… --- When I request a match, the screen disappears and I dont know what happens, after sometime the page comes back with a match. -- It would be better to show some kind of progress indicator.
Request Match with No CEHRTs in MYCEHRTs 16 Bad Text Shown to provider
McKesson Test EHR Pilot 17 1. Availability times should include timezones 2. Add text in the trust anchor section to indicate that it should be downloaded And installed. 3. McKesson has a.7z.SAFE file extension for the trust anchor which for non-technical people Will be challenging to unzip 4. There are four certificates that need to be used, how do we know which one to use Contacted the vendor. Maybe we should have only one for providers to download and install. 5. Sent SITE Trust Anchor without zip file that was blocked, so maybe guidance should be provided to vendors to provide their anchor in a zip format so that providers dont have to decipher these issues. 6. Discovered that McKesson Trust Anchor was incorrect and notified pilot participants to get it corrected. - Once it was corrected the four trust anchors were removed and replaced by a single trust anchor which is preferable. - The replaced trust anchor did not conform to Direct Applicability Statement so it was asked to be reworked by Mckessson. 7. *** We should test every TEST EHR using an environment like SITE to address these issues so that providers dont get annoyed during attestation.
