ONC Federal Advisory Committees Hold Joint Meeting on Interoperability; Two Senior ONC Staff Leaving the Agency

On October 15, the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for HIT (ONC) held a joint meeting of the HIT Policy Committee and HIT Standards Committee to discuss the draft interoperability roadmap, health information exchange (HIE: the verb, not necessarily the noun) governance, and the JASON Task Force recommendations. The outcome of the meeting was an approved set of broad recommendations to ONC indicating a desire to leverage open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as the foundational approach for nationwide HIE.

ONC also announced that two senior ONC staff, Dr. Doug Fridsma and Judy Murphy, would be attending their last federal advisory committee meeting as employees of the agency. Dr. Fridsma has been with the agency for four years and most recently served as Chief Science Officer. Judy Murphy most recently served as Deputy National Coordinator for Programs and Policy.
