Welcome to CCHIT

CCHIT continues its mission of accelerating the adoption of robust, interoperable health IT. Widespread adoption fosters improvements in quality, efficiency and access – key goals in the dialog on health reform. In alliance with HIMSS, CCHIT is developing new programs aimed at supporting change in the way providers and patients use IT to positively transform health and healthcare.  Learn more

What We're Doing Now

In January 2014, we determined our mission would be best served by withdrawing from the ONC HIT Certification Program and offering our talents in new ways.  In June 2014, CCHIT launched CCHIT Guide Services for the ONC HIT Certification Program - a series of individualized programs to help health IT developers meet the requirements for ONC-certified EHR technology. Future plans include the addition of other services for vendors and providers that will remain close to the trenches, offering educational resources and practical, hands-on help that our customers lack within their own organizations.  Read more

Since 2005, CCHIT has been the leader in health IT certification, working with more than 400 vendors and 1400 health IT products, to help healthcare providers understand the capabilities of the products they are purchasing.
