Cypress, with the fully integrated Cypress Validation Utility + Calculation Check (CVU+), is an open source testing tool used by vendors to certify their electronic health records (EHRs) and health information technology (IT) modules for calculating electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs). Cypress is an official testing tool for the ONC EHR Certification Program. Testing involves Cypress generating synthetic patient records for the subset of published eCQMs selected for certification and testing the ability of the EHR systems and health IT modules to accurately record, import, calculate, filter, and report eCQMs.
