The HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has released its final “Roadmap” to promote the secure exchange and use of electronic health information. The document, “Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap Version 1.0,” describes policy and technical actions needed to meet ONC’s “vision of a seamless data system.” The document addresses both short-term and long-term priorities, with an emphasis on the short-term goal of enabling a majority of individuals and providers to send, receive, find, and use a common set of electronic clinical information at the nationwide level by the end of 2017.
