Over 71 percent of the electronic health records of providers and hospitals that have successfully attested to meaningful use criteria are dually certified under both the Certification Bodies and the Certified Commission for Health Information Technology programs and the Office of the National Coordinator-Authorized Testing, according to a CCHIT news release. Additionally, the latest figures from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service show approximately 22,000 eligible providers and hospitals with complete EHRs have successfully attested.

CCHIT continues to certify EHR products in both programs. The CCHIT Certified program includes both "core" and "optional" certifications such as add-on certifications for specialty care or special patient populations.
