CCHIT to adapt programs to federal health IT agenda
Government Health IT, May 26, 2009
The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology will put its 2009-2010 programs on hold and update its certification policies in light of guidance contained in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. CCHIT said it will defer the launch of its latest certification programs until it has reviewed the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT's forthcoming standards and certification criteria. ONC will deliver a draft rule containing those items to the Health and Human Services Department by Aug. 26. CCHIT's certification cycle was set to begin July 1.
