The ONC's aim was to design a site that will connect patients to "resources that empower them to make changes, and ultimately, (improve) the nation's health—one person at a time,” according to an e-mailed news release from the ONC. The site also will answer questions about privacy as it relates to electronic health records and will offer information for providers looking to transition to EHR systems.
