NAHIT to close doors
Health Data Management, August 18, 2009
Saying its mission has been accomplished, the National Alliance for Health Information Technology will cease operations on Sept. 30.
The Chicago-based organization formed in early 2002 to develop industry consensus on voluntary standards for health information technology. In that time, NAHIT co-founded the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology, formed the Healthcare Supply Chain Standards Coalition, and created a public directory of health IT standards.
