ONC HIT Policy and Standards Committees Hold Joint Hearing on Health Information Exchange

On January 29, the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT’s (ONC) HIT Policy Committee and HIT Standards Committee held a rare joint meeting to hear from stakeholders regarding various health information exchange (HIE) issues.  Invited panelists included representatives from Accountable Care Organizations, HIT vendors, integrated health care delivery systems, and state/regional HIE networks, among others.

ONC initially announced the hearing on December 20, 2012, alongside various other activities intended to take the place of a rulemaking to develop federal HIE governance regulations.  Although ONC was essentially positioning itself for a rulemaking throughout the first half of 2012, public comments on a May Request for Information convinced the agency that federal regulations could potentially stifle innovation in the States and private sector.
