National Academies Report on CMS IT Strategies and Priorities

The National Academies Press released a prepublication copy of the National Research Council’s report titled “Strategies and Priorities for Information Technology at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.”  The report provides recommendations to CMS about implementing strategies and IT infrastructure needed to support its various quality and healthcare payment reform programs.

Note that the document is currently in “draft” form and there are a few noticeable inaccuracies/typos that will likely be corrected prior to final publication.

The National Research Council is comprised of council members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine.  The committee that put together the report included several familiar experts, including Dr. John Glaser (former ONC advisor) and Dr. George Hripcsak (member of the HIT Policy Committee’s Meaningful Use Workgroup), among others.
