Co-chairs and members of The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology's (CCHIT) 2007-2008 all-volunteer work groups and expert panels have been selected and are scheduled to begin work next month.

According to the CCHIT, a not-for-profit Chicago-based certification organization, these teams bring together 161 volunteers, who will work to develop a significantly expanded certification program for 2008.

There are two types of volunteer roles: membership in one of five sustaining work groups (foundation; ambulatory EHR; inpatient EHR; emergency department EHR; and networks); or serving on one of five new expert panels (security; interoperability; privacy and compliance; child health; and cardiovascular medicine), says CCHIT.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
