PCAST Report Workgroup’s Analysis and Letter to ONC

During the April 2011 HIT Policy Committee meeting, the PCAST Report Workgroup presented its analysis and transmittal letter regarding implementation recommendations and strategies in the wake of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) report titled “Realizing the Full Potential of Health Information Technology to Improve Healthcare for Americans: The Path Forward.”

PCAST is an advisory body administered by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.  The PCAST report on HIT was the focus of much debate when it was originally published in December 2010.

Soon after publication of the report, the HIT Policy Committee established a workgroup to assist the ONC with analyzing the recommendations, digesting the public comments received in response to ONC’s request for information (RFI) in December 2010, and developing advice for how the PCAST’s ideas could be integrated with existing federal initiatives.

The Radiological Society of North America and American College of Radiology submitted joint comments in response to the ONC’s RFI back in January 2011.
