Competition for Certification Authority




????  During the last four years EHR vendors have formed the alliance called CCHIT, to establish the standards for interoperability of disparate electronic health records.   A large number of vendors have already complied with this standard.  In fact many potential users have taken a wait and see attitude because of the lack of a standard.

ONCHIT had recently announced that it would seek out other potential certifying bodys (ie, COMPETITORS) before adopting one standard.  Thus far there has been only one other competitor (THE DRUMMOND GROUP).
