ONC issues draft health IT plan through 2015
from Modern Healthcare
Dr. David Blumenthal, outgoing head of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, delivered a going-away present to his successor in the form of an 81-page draft update to the five-year Federal Health IT Strategic Plan. The plan, mandated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, shows how the diverse public- and private-sector collaborations to promote the use of health IT "fit together," according to Blumenthal, who also said that adoption and meaningful use of electronic health record systems remains the "unifying focal point of our strategy."
