Are you confused or unsure about the role the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology will play in certifying electronic health-record systems for eligibility under the EHR subsidy program of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009?
Most people are. Some elucidation may come during a “town call” Web conference hosted by the not-for-profit CCHIT today at noon CT.
At the meeting, CCHIT officials will “gather input from the vendor and developer community on the details and timing of its planned new paths to certification of electronic health record technologies, with the goal of supporting more rapid, widespread adoption and meaningful use” under the stimulus law, according to a CCHIT news release.
