NQF endorses national consensus standards for health IT

Market Watch, September 2, 2008
The National Quality Forum has endorsed nine new national voluntary consensus standards for health information technology in the areas of electronic prescribing, electronic health record interoperability, care management, quality registries, and the medical home. These HIT structural measures are intended to help providers assess the efficiency and standardization of current HIT systems and identify areas where additional HIT tools can be used, according to a NQF release.
