The HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is seeking comments on its draft “Health IT Patient Safety Action and Surveillance Plan,” a blueprint for using health information technology (IT) to make care safer and to continuously improve the safety of health IT. The draft plan offers a list of actions in three broad strategic areas: increasing the quantity and quality of data and knowledge about health IT safety; targeting resources and corrective actions to improve health IT safety and patient safety; and promote a culture of safety related to health IT. The plan, which addresses recommendations made in the 2011 Institute of Medicine Report, “Health IT and Patient Safety: Building Safer Systems for Better Care,” emphasizes shared responsibly among the government, industry, clinicians, patients, accrediting bodies, health IT developers, and other parties. Comments on the plan will be accepted until February 4, 2013.
