Panel: Strengthening the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan With Data
In a world where medical data can be accessed within seconds by patients and healthcare providers, it is important that the Federal government ensures it is both secure and accessible for its users. The Federal Health IT Strategic Plan was developed to demonstrate the federal government’s coordinated focus on improving the access, exchange, and use of electronic health information. This Strategic Plan explains how the Federal Government intends to regulate, purchase, develop, and use health IT to help deliver care and improve patient health.
Tune into this panel as topic experts explore the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan, what it means for agencies, and the steps needed to implement it. In what ways do these topic experts see the future of the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan being strengthened by using data? What will that look like within the Federal Government?
