The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) today announced that it is winding down all operations, effective immediately, with all work slated to end by November 14, 2014. According to CCHIT, customers and business colleagues have been notified and its staff is assisting in the transition.

CCHIT was established in 2004 through a collaboration with three HIT associations—HIMSS, the American Health Information Management Association, and the National Alliance for Health Information Technology (now defunct)—to provide certification services for health IT products and education for healthcare providers and IT developers. In October 2005, the Department of Health and Human Services contracted with CCHIT to develop certification programs for electronic health records and health information exchanges.
