CCHIT revamping EHR certification
Health Data Management, September 1, 2009
The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology is moving forward with plans to launch a new, less comprehensive electronic health records software certification program in response to the federal economic stimulus package. In October, the commission plans to launch a more limited, modular inspection program for EHR software, focusing only on compliance with standards required for "meaningful use" of EHRs under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
