The ONC published hundreds of responses that were submitted by industry stakeholders about its Federal Health IT Strategic Plan.

The Federal Health IT Strategic Plan outlines an effort among more than 35 federal departments and agencies to improve the use of electronic health information to improve care, public health and research. The draft was open to public comment until Feb. 6, according to the ONC's website.

Commenters include physicians, nonprofits, health systems, federal agencies, industry associations and health IT companies. The ONC plans to review the comments and publish a revised draft later in 2015.
