The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT), a Chicago-based nonprofit, is shutting down operations after 10 years in service.
In the past, the health IT certification and education-focused nonprofit has offered electronic health record (EHR) testing and certification services and independently developed certification programs. Earlier this year, it announced it was switching from certification to offering direct counseling on the requirements for certified EHR technology. It’s told customers and business colleagues that it’s shutting down completely by mid-November.
