The EHR Vendor Recognition Program (VRP) has been developed by the WVRHITEC to help connect health care providers interested in acquiring an electronic health record system with vendors who have met certain thresholds of clinical functionality and service. The Five Star vendors being recognized by the WVHRITEC include in alphabetic order Allscripts, athenahealth, eClinicalWorks, e-MDs, GE Healthcare, Greenway Medical Technologies, NextGen Healthcare, Inc. and Vitera Healthcare Solutions.
These vendors were recognized as Five Star EHR Vendors following a thorough market research review, an open RFI process, and evaluation by the WVRHITEC’s staff and physician advisers as well as by a neutral third-party consultant who has spent 20 years in the health information technology field as a vendor. The vendors also meet the ONC’s EHR certification and meaningful use requirements and will be working closely with the WVRHITEC in order to facilitate the implementation process.
Vendors who are not recognized as Five Star vendors can become recognized by completing the RFI, meeting the minimal qualifications for recognition including ONC certification, and committing to working closely as a partner with the WVHITEC in supporting West Virginia health providers. Additional eligible vendors will be added as the WVHRITEC can accommodate their requests from a technical support and training perspective.
The WVRHITEC is a vendor-neutral resource, and providers are free to select any EHR vendor solution that meets their needs. Moreover, this vendor recognition program is not an endorsement for any particular vendor nor is the WVRHITEC offering any warranties or guarantees on vendor solutions.

Certification conferred by ONC-recognized certification bodies does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nor does it guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
