More Certified EHRs Under CCHIT 2008 Criteria
A handful of new Electronic Health Records (EHRs) have been added to the list of CCHIT Certified 2008 Ambulatory EHRs. Now that the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology has released the new 2009-2010 criteria, let's see how quickly these EHR companies adapt to meet them. My guess is that everyone will be striving to become CCHIT certified because of the ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) of 2009. Companies that previously thought they could get by without being certified will either need to rebuild their applications to meet the certification requirements of they will simply disappear over the next few years.
