ONC Drafts 5-Year Health IT Strategic Plan

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT has released its five-year Federal Health IT Strategic Plan: 2011-2015, which details the ONC's strategy for realizing Congress and the Administration's health IT agenda, according to an HHS news release.

The strategic plan, originally published in 2008, is being updated to reflect the impact of the HITECH Act and the Affordable Care Act. It includes five goals, including achieving adoption and information exchange through meaningful use of health IT; improving care and population health while reducing costs through use of health IT; inspiring confidence and trust in health IT; empowering individuals with health IT to improve their own health; and achieving rapid learning and technological advancement.

ONC has also issued an open public comment period on the strategic plan, through April 22, 2011, in order to better inform its strategy.
