What's Happening Now
March 25, 2013 – Now on PlanningRoom.org – Updating the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan: The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) wants public input to update the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan. This Plan outlines goals and strategies for the nationwide shift to electronic health records and information exchange, and for the adoption and meaningful use of new health information technologies. Whether you’re a patient, consumer, provider, insurer or health IT developer, you should have a voice in this process! ONC has partnered with researchers at Cornell University to provide Planning Room, a website that makes it easy for you to learn about what ONC is thinking and offer your thoughts, experiences, and suggestions. The Cornell team will moderate the discussion, which ONC will follow and carefully consider when drafting the revised Plan. The first topic for discussion is “Empower Individuals through Health IT to Improve Health and Health Care.” This topic is open for discussion through May 9, 2013.
