The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has released a comprehensive plan for advancing health information technology. The plan is designed to serve as a guide to coordinate the federal government's health IT efforts, which seek to achieve nationwide implementation of an interoperable health IT infrastructure throughout both the public and private sector. The ONC-Coordinated Federal Health IT Strategic Plan focuses efforts along two primary goals: patient-focused healthcare, and population health, according to an ONC release.
