In response to Jean DerGurahian's "CCHIT proposes new approach to EHR development":
This is to correct and clarify for your readers the pricing of the new site-specific option for electronic health-record certification proposed by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology.
The site-testing fee for physician practices is projected at $150 to $300 per licensed provider, paid by the practice. Fees for hospitals seeking this type of certification are yet to be determined. Health IT developers do not undergo testing under this option.
