The first public comment period for the Chicago-based

Certification Commission for Health Information Technology

(CCHIT)’s 2011 development cycle is open through Dec. 11, 2009. Comments will be accepted on the first draft of criteria for Behavioral Health EHRs — both standalone and as an optional add-on to Comprehensive Ambulatory EHR certification — as well as add-on certifications for Clinical Research and Dermatology.

According to the Commission, the new certification options will be made available to vendors in July 2010. Comments will only be taken through the Commission’s Web site at

The Commission also plans to open public comment from Dec. 14, 2009, through Jan. 12, 2010, on the first round of criteria for Long Term and Post Acute Care (LTPAC) EHRs. The goal is to develop a core set of criteria for skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies, with the goal to launch the certification programs in July 2010.

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!
