Health Information Technology (HIT) Implementation Testing and Support web site for the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) Initiative launched

This web site, developed in partnership between the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT), Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) provides HIT implementers with access to the tools and resources needed to support and test their implementation of standards-based health systems.

This site provides information about the key initiatives that serve as the foundation for the nationwide health IT infrastructure. It provides an overview of the HITSP Interoperability Specifications and the standards that they reference; and provides access to the test resources that are available to support their implementations. On this site, you will also find links to additional information about CCHIT, HITSP, our test approach, and how you can contribute to the on-going expansion of this site as a testing partner.
