A work group that is part of the American Health Information Community has until the end of October to unveil recommended ways to connect health IT and programs designed to boost healthcare quality. According to comments from leaders of the work group, their efforts are not to generate totally new ways to measure quality, but rather to link various current efforts to gauge measurement that make use of health IT. The efforts of the group will also go towards assisting the ongoing work of the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology regarding the certification of health-IT products.
