The Chicago-based Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) has announced the creation of two new, all volunteer work group panels to develop criteria for electronic health records (EHRs) in Women’s Health and Oncology.

The work group volunteers—13 for Women’s Health and 15 for Oncology—were appointed by CCHIT following an open application process, and represent a diverse range of healthcare stakeholders, including physicians, hospital representatives, and health IT developers. Vendor participation on CCHIT workgroups can account for no more than 33 percent of the workgroup as a whole.

The Women’s Health and Oncology Work Groups will meet for the first time July 14 in Chicago where they will receive the Commission’s guidance for their upcoming work. These new certification programs are expected to be available by spring of 2011.

CCHIT is an independent nonprofit organization that has been certifying electronic health record technology since 2006.
