CCHIT to Launch EHR Certification for Hospitals

The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology has announced it will launch a new customized electronic health record certification program for hospitals without certified EHR systems on Dec. 15, according to a CCHIT news release.

The EHR Alternative Certifications for Hospitals program is designed to meet the needs of hospitals that have uncertified healthcare IT software, customized commercial products or have developed their own EHR systems to suit their individual needs. Before the EACH program is launch on Dec. 15, CCHIT will be hosting a Town Call webcast and teleconference on Dec. 1.

Alternative certification is an option for hospitals that have not already adopted an EHR with complete certification or a combination of certified EHR modules that meet the 2011/2012 certification criteria.
