Health IT Coordinator’s Office Prepares Road Map to Interoperability

healthcare systemThe Office of the National Coordinator For Health Information Technology is building a shared road map for health IT stakeholders to establish interoperability across the health IT system.

ONC officials said the office has been working with policymakers, technology developers, health institutions and other stakeholders to develop a framework designed to drive greater access to healthcare, technologies and information.

“[The] digitization of the healthcare experience is creating a palpable demand for the data collected to be shared so it can be put to use to improve care and improve health to advance public health and science,” Karen DeSalvo and Erica Galvez said Wednesday.

According to the two officials, the road map considers core technical standards and functions, certification, privacy and security measures, rules of engagement and governance and a supportive environment, as well as sets goals for the three-, six- and 10-year milestones.

ONC will meet this week to discuss updates from its interoperability portfolio manager and other parties, gather feedback and prepare the draft road map that the office will release for public comment within the next three months.
