ONC Releases Updated Healthcare Systems Interoperability Guide

1 min read

healthcare systemThe Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has revised a catalog that lists federally recognized interoperability guidelines and standards for electronic health records systems in the U.S.

The agency updated its Interoperability Standards Advisory publication as part of efforts to establish a national health IT infrastructure and track industry progress toward adoption of interoperable EHR platforms, ONC officials Steven Posnack and Chris Muir wrote in a blog entry published Tuesday.

Posnack and Muir said ONC will seek public comments on the advisory beginning in early 2016 and use gathered input to craft a fiscal 2017 guide.

The development of an interoperable system “is an essential element toward Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell’s vision of better care through smarter spending, leading to healthier people,” Karen DeSalvo, national coordinator for health IT, was quoted as saying by FedScoop.
