eRX Conditional: These are products that are certified pending advanced ePrescribing EHRs and are in the process of verifying their ability to conduct the necessary tools (medication history, formulary and eligibility checking through a national network) for ePrescribing transactions.

Fully Certified:  This means the EHR product has been verified and it is a CCHIT Certified® product.
