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.

Get the latest information on Health IT and attend other valuable sessions at this two-day Summit providing healthcare leaders with educational content, insightful debate and dialogue on the future of healthcare and technology.
