Multiple groups proposed for EHR certification

E-health committee calls for multiple groups to certify records systems
The top federal panel that sets policies for electronic health records so that a national system can be adopted made recommendations on Friday that would allow multiple organizations to certify electronic record products instead of the one certifying body that exists today.

Wouldn't multiple groups defeat the purpose of having a standard? I can see that if some feel that the exiting certification body has become the captive of a small group of vendors changes need to be made, but multiple groups?
