CCHIT Announces Obstetric Certification of EHRs

CCHIT has announced plans to certify ambulatory EHRs in obstetrics (women's health), as well as oncology and clinical research. The "specialty-specific" criteria for certification under CCHIT's ambulatory EHR program are different from the federal criteria for "meaningful use" in the ONC-ATCB certification program. EHR vendors digiChart, Greenway, and MDTablets participated in pilot testing the certification criteria for Women's Health. Vendors can apply for the certification beginning June 2.
