What is CCHIT Compliance?
A CCHIT CertifiedSM EHR is an assurance to your customers –
physicians and other providers – and to others in the marketplace
– payers, purchasers and consumers – that your products
meet all basic criteria for functionality, interoperability and
security. CCHIT is the recognized certification authority for EHRs;
it invests in outreach campaigns designed to help your current and

when certifying HIT products is based on agreed-upon standards,
as well as unbiased inspection and testing.
Certification for ambulatory EHR products is available in 2006;
