The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) believes a private-public partnership would be better to run the future Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN), rather than a federal body alone.

ONC is required under the stimulus package to establish a governing body for the NwHIN.

The request for information (RFI), which is the very first step the federal government takes to proceed with a regulation, recommended how ONC would provide infrastructure to validate what groups could participate in the NwHIN.
