ONC Extends Comment Period on Draft Update to the Federal HIT Strategic Plan

ONC Federal HIT Strategic Plan

ONCs Federal HIT Strategic Plan

This afternoon, the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT (ONC) announced a short extension of the comment period for the (draft) Federal HIT Strategic Plan.  Stakeholder comments will now be accepted until May 6 via the Health IT Buzz blog.  There are approximately 83 submissions as of this writing.

One of the challenges ONC is probably encountering is that the blog, while a useful vehicle for staff to share informal announcements with the public, is not the best mechanism for a federal agency to collect feedback from professional organizations and other interested groups. ONC did publish an official notice in the Federal Register on March 29, but did not provide a more formal means of comment submission.

Please see my March 25 post for more information on ONC’s request for comments regarding the draft update to the Federal HIT Strategic Plan.
