Federal Health IT Advisory Committee launches 4 new task forces

The federal Health IT Advisory Committee launched four new task forces during its meeting Feb. 20, according to the Politico Morning eHealth newsletter.

HITAC, a 25-member committee created under the 21st Century Cures Act, is charged with providing policy recommendations to the ONC. The new task forces will issue recommendations on the ONC's most recent set of interoperability rules, which the agency released Feb. 11.

The task forces will offer recommendations on four aspects of the proposed interoperability rules: (1) information-blocking requirements, (2) certification requirements, (3) standards for voluntary pediatric health IT certification and (4) the U.S. Core Data for Interoperability proposal.

The task forces are slated to provide their recommendations by late March.
