For two weeks, the Chicago-based Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) will be recruiting work group volunteers to support its 2009 certification program.
Those interested are encouraged to apply from now until May 4.

- Inpatient EHR
- Personal Health Records (New)
