Health IT Product Pre-Testing Services

SLI Compliance is also poised to assist companies that are unsure if they’re ready to embark on the full-blown certification process. We understand regulations can be complicated and often times confusing. Our team of experienced professionals are here to assist you through the following pre-testing services:

  • Establish criteria for qualifying technologies.
  • Efficiently identify your system scope and define process starting point.
  • Provide clear understanding of the ONC Certification Program requirements.
  • One-on-One subject matter expert resource consultations.
  • Perform customized system Pre-testing to provide crucial feedback, associated risks, and a level of confidence for your systems.

3rd Party Assessment Testing Services:

As program rules and requirements change, vendors may need assistance in testing to ensure their product meets the necessary criteria for certification. SLI Compliance can help vendors gain a high level of confidence in their product(s) and assist with verifying conformance to the ONC Health IT Program criteria by performing an Independent 3rd Party Verification.

SLI’s knowledgeable staff can provide 3rd party testing against the approved ONC criteria, provide valuable feedback and help vendors understand exactly where their product stands. 3rd Party verification is independent of testing for ONC Health IT Certification but will provide you with the necessary information about your product and assurance the product is ready for certification.

  • I want to thank you again for SLI's independent assessment of Broomfield's election procedures and subsequent development of updated election procedures. SLI's work assisted the City Council greatly in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of existing systems and helped restore confidence in these systems for future elections.

    Assistant City and County Manager

  • It is with sincere gratitude and appreciation that we unconditionally recommend SLI. Our effort to obtain Meaningful Use Stage 2 Certification for our community health software platform required significant interpretation of the federal guidelines that SLI provided in plain English, on an as needed, and always timely basis. The staff is outstanding and their attitude is nothing less than grace under pressure. To keep it all together, with client after client struggling to interpret often vague federal guidelines, is laudable. The bottom line is that we had a choice, and we went with a recommendation for SLI based on a couple interviews with folks that preceded us, and it turned out to be the best possible decision.

  • …the EAC finds that the policy and procedures currently in place at SLI show a dramatic, significant effort representing a company-wide commitment to the EAC Laboratory Accreditation Program and ongoing quality improvement.

  • Over the past year, I sought SLI’s assistance in providing information to me on testing practices for the Uniform Voting System (UVS) that the State of Colorado is seeking. I also worked with them as they developed a report for the Colorado Voter Access and Modernized Elections Commission on an assessment of voting system technology in Colorado. The results provided by SLI were valuable and helped the state make key decisions regarding Colorado's UVS strategy. As our project moves forward, we expect to call upon SLI to test one or more proposed systems to meet Colorado Voting System Certification Standards.

  • The SLI team, in my opinion, was outstanding. I truly appreciated this process and all the guidance they provided. Not only did this team well represent themselves and the expertise they possess, but also well represented the SLI organization. I would highly recommend SLI to anyone...

    Norman Joseph

    Vice President, Product Management

  • We are so gratified that our cumulative efforts have yielded the much-needed results. I must hasten to add that the work of the entire SLI team has lent so much credibility to this entire electoral process. For this alone, you have the gratitude of not just this member of the Technical Evaluation Committee, but more likely that of an entire nation.
