healthcare IT newsThe public comment period for the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology’s (CCHIT) first draft of certification criteria and test scripts for electronic health records (EHR) used in Oncology and Women's Health (obstetrics component) is open through Dec. 10, until 5 p.m. Central time. People are invited to add comments through the Commission’s Web site. Public comments will be considered to perform further modifications and adjustments to the certification criteria and test scripts. The Oncology and Women’s Health work groups will make any necessary changes after reviewing participants' comments. Pilot tests, conducted with volunteered vendor products, will be started  in February 2011, with the certification programs scheduled to launch later in the spring of 2011. Both new certifications are optional add-on certifications to the Commission’s CCHIT Certified 2011 Ambulatory EHR certification program released in October 2009.

CCHIT certification programs cover most healthcare specialties.   

Oncology and Women’s Health are the latest fields to be included into CCHIT’s independently-developed certification programs and are considered the Commission’s new commitment to meet the needs of specific medical specialties, care settings and patient populations. Beside its Ambulatory and Inpatient EHR certification programs, CCHIT currently offers certification programs for Cardiovascular Medicine; Child Health; Emergency Departments; Behavioral Health; Dermatology; and Long-Term and Post-Acute Care. The Commission plans to introduce a new program for EHRs used in Clinical Research in January 2011.
