The Chicago-based Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) says a rush of applications to meet a March 31 application deadline brought the number of ambulatory EHR products seeking CCHIT certification to 64.

The organization says total applications represent a 33 percent growth over the 2007 cycle, which it says is strong evidence that the industry sees a solid continuing role for CCHIT certification in federal and private-sector health IT adoption efforts. Additionally, nearly 40 percent of the applications were seeking certification for first-time rather than returning EHR products, and more than 60 percent of the applicants reported revenues of $10 million or less.
