Rural Providers' EHR Advocate to Step Down

Cora Nucci, for HealthLeaders Media, February 9, 2011

These are some of the services most RECs can provide:

  • Strategic planning
  • Stakeholder analysis & engagement
  • Governance planning
  • Information architecture development
  • Policy development
  • Operational planning
  • Vendor review & contracting
  • Change management
  • Project management

The ONC has big shoes to fill when Blumenthal leaves. It may be tough to find as passionate an advocate as the physician-turned-EHR evangelist who kept rural healthcare providers on his radar. Let's hope his successor makes it a priority to speed the implementation of EHR far and wide, so that all Americans may benefit, not only those who live in or near large cities.

"Let's hope ..." ? Maybe I missed the editorial label - advocacy is not reporting.
