CCHIT to cease operations in Nov.

Health IT SmartBrief | Oct 29, 2014

The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology, formed through the alliance of AHIMA, HIMSS and the now-defunct National Alliance for Health Information Technology, announced it will conclude its operations by Nov. 14. CCHIT Executive Director Alisa Ray said the trustees reached that decision because it had become difficult to plan new services due to the "slowing of the pace of ONC 2014 Edition certification and the unreliable timing of future federal health IT program requirements." CCHIT was tapped by the ONC in 2010 to be a health IT authorized certification body and testing laboratory, but it left the agency's HIT Certification Program in January.
