Criticisms of HIMSS and CCHIT

HIMSS and CCHIT come under criticism over conflict of interests in board membership and other issues. Anonymous critics have touched off a spate of criticism over potential conflicts of interest with too much cross-pollination of HIMSS/ CCHIT board membership. High certification fees have also come under fire. Apparently a temporary dissolution of CCHIT due to clerical error has fanned the flames of discontent here.
Perhaps the appearance of impropriety in a world wearied by a never-ending parade of corporate scandals might make people more inclined to investigate open source alternatives?
