ACR Submits Nominations for the HIT Policy Committee and HIT Standards Committee

On June 11, the American College of Radiology formally submitted the nominations of Keith J. Dreyer, DO, PhD, FACR, FSIIM for the HIT Policy Committee (HITPC), and John Anthony Carrino, MD, MPH for the HIT Standards Committee (HITSC).  These committees are administered by the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for HIT (ONC) and are subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act.  The HITPC roster is only partially appointed by the HHS/ONC, with additional seats being appointed by the  Government Accountability Office (GAO) and some others identified by the establishing statute.

ONC published its call for nominations in the June 1, 2012 Federal Register. Aside from the initial establishment of these committees in 2009, ONC has not previously solicited HITPC or HITSC nominations from the public.   On May 11, 2012, GAO solicited nominations to fill an upcoming vacancy for one of the three GAO-appointed patient/consumer spots on the HITPC.
