Steven Posnack: ONC Launches Interoperability Proving Ground

health infosecThe Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has launched a community platform for health information technology professionals to share and learn from interoperability programs in the U.S.

Steven Posnack, director of ONC’s Office of Standards and Technology, wrote in a blog post published Wednesday the Interoperability Proving Ground is the first output of ONC’s Tech Lab approach.

IPG is designed to help users share the project title, tags, description and hyperlink to their interoperability project’s website.

“The data you share populate the main IPG home page so anyone can easily filter and search across the entire interoperability project database or view interoperability projects nationwide on an interactive map,” Posnack wrote.

Posnack said ONC has included its interoperability-related projects to IPG and will update the platform on a regular basis.
