Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT)
The Association of Emergency Physicians (AEP), a national organization committed to representing and supporting all Emergency Physicians regardless of practice setting, background or training, is pleased to endorse the efforts of the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT). Emergency Medicine is a safety net specialty that is highly reliant on the delivery of accurate, relevant medical information at the point of care and medical decision-making, and AEP supports CCHIT’s efforts to facilitate a thoughtful approach to health information technology adoption strategy.
The Association enthusiastically supports this important project by CCHIT and looks forward to the potential benefits to our members, and ultimately to the patients that come through the doors of America’s Emergency Departments every day.
