"Putting the 'I' in Health IT"

This blog was created in part to better communicate to ADA members the work of the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology—the principal Federal entity charged with coordination of nationwide efforts to implement and use the most advanced health information technology and the electronic exchange of health information.” 

ADA began commenting on proposed rules of the HITECH Act when it was passed in February of 2009 and has continued non-stop since that time. While dietitians do not qualify for the incentive payments provided by HITECH, the infrastructure development created via the HITECH Act (the Policy Committee, the Standards Committee and the Standards and Interoperability Framework) are critical to assuring nutrition care be included in all aspects of health care. 

Today marks the launch of a consumer engagement portion of the HITECH Initiative—“Putting the ‘I’ In Health IT.” Check out their new site, which provides information and guidance on the use of health information technology for both providers and patients.

Don’t forget to join the ADA member Nutrition Informatics Community to discuss key issues involving the “Intersection of information, nutrition and technology.”
