85 Percent of Hospitals Select CCHIT Certified Products

are two real benefits. One, it helps us know that our software company is keeping up. And, two, it assures us that our arrangements with independent physicians for software sharing are covered by the expanded Stark exemptions. On the hospital side, CCHIT certification is getting there. After an early focus only on the closed medication loop, CCHIT certification is moving toward certification of a more comprehensive EMR for the acute setting. Especially for small and rural hospitals, that certification will give them confidence as they make a system selection, something that we had to do the hard way (from scratch, with outside help and over a year's period of time)." - Denni McColm, CIO, Citizens Memorial Healthcare, Bolivar, Mo., 74 beds

"At St. Clair Hospital, validating the CCHIT certification of all EMR-related products for use inside the hospital and in the ambulatory setting is a key part of our process. We need to be sure that our investment in the systems will truly pay dividends in achieving interoperability and compliance with regulatory initiatives. CCHIT certification gives us a sense of comfort in knowing the vendor shares our vision of adhering to standards so that the adoption of EMRs can advance as quickly, and safely, as possible. Most importantly, certification plays a vital role in ensuring healthcare moves forward as an industry through the use of systems and technology." - Richard J Schaeffer, Vice President/CIO, St. Clair Hospital, Pittsburgh, 329 beds

"Now that SSM Health Care has established a substantial EHR network, our focus has begun to shift toward interoperability with independent physician offices and hospitals outside our health system. Because of the standards established through CCHIT, our certified, enterprise system is now more capable of exchanging critical patient information with those hospitals or practices also using CCHIT Certified products. We can also now recommend CCHIT Certified
