The HITECH act designated that in order to get the $40k+ of EHR stimulus money you have to implement a certified EHR. However, the HITECH act lets HHS decide which EHR certification criteria to use. All CCHIT vendors are hoping it will be the CCHIT certification. Many people don’t want it to be the CCHIT certification. I decided to see what readers of EMR and HIPAA think about CCHIT certification as the criteria. So, vote for which EHR certification criteria should be selected by HHS as the certification necessary for receiving EHR stimulus funds.
