Health IT Standards Committee Seeks Comments on Nationwide Health Information Network

The Health Information Technology Standards Committee is working with the Nationwide Health Information Network Power Team in seeking comments from NwHIN users on their experiences with the health information exchange, according to the Federal Advisory Committee blog post.

HITSC and the NwHIN Power Team aim to better understand the effectiveness of the exchange's specifications. The NwHIN Power Team, which was created by ONC to define the NwHIN's standards and policies, has requested input from people that should specifically include those "who have implemented [the exchange's] specifications in organizations other than Federal agencies," according to the post.

The NwHIN Power Team wants feedback on the following areas:
•    Implementing the exchange's specifications.
•    Setting up the required operational and administrative infrastructure.
•    Using the exchange to meet operational needs.

Comments are due Dec. 15, after which HITSC will make recommendations to ONC on future development of NwHIN specifications.
