The Federal Health Information Technology Strategic Plan is being updated by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS, and the public is invited to help in the planning process.
ONC seeks input on updating strategic plan
The objective of the rewrite is to set the “goals and strategies for the nationwide shift to electronic records and information exchange and for the creation and spread of new health information technologies,” according to a statement of intent at the Planning Room, a website run by Cornell University's e-Rulemaking Initiative to improve public participation in policymaking.
Through May 9, the topic under discussion is how to empower individuals through health IT to improve health and healthcare.
Other topics are also available via links on the website.
Last updated and released in September 2011, the 80-page plan sought to reflect “a coordinated strategy between the public and private sector to improve the quality, efficiency, safety and patient-centeredness of healthcare.”
