The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will be hosting a free day-long public roundtable to address the topic of Personal Health Records on December 3, 2010. The roundtable is designed to inform ONC’s Congressionally-mandated report on privacy and security requirements for non-Covered Entities, with a focus on personal health records and related service providers (Section 13424 of the HITECH Act). Information about how to register for the roundtable will be available in October.
