ONC issues call for Health IT Advisory Committee applicants

ONC released a notice seeking applicants for the federal Health IT Advisory Committee July 25.

The 25-member Health IT Advisory Committee was created under the 21st Century Cures Act, which former President Barack Obama signed into law in December 2016. The committee of experts — appointed by Congressional leaders, the HHS secretary and the comptroller general of the Government Accountability Office — will provide policy recommendations to the ONC.

Congressional leaders have appointed several committee members in recent months, including Anil K. Jain, MD, vice president and chief health informatics officer of IBM; Steve Ready, CIO of Louisville, Ky.-based Norton Healthcare; Steven Lane, MD, clinical informatics director of Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health; and biotech entrepreneur and surgeon Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD.

Applications for the committee must be submitted to the ONC by Aug. 4.
