Standards Collaboration

The work promoting the adoption and uptake of health information technology is key to ensuring the goals of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH), the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), and the 21st Century Cures Act of 2016.

ONC is engaged in developing and harmonizing domestic health IT standards and also interfaces with health IT organizations in the international community to promote best practices and collaboration with other countries.

Standards Advisory

The Standards Advisory represents the model by which the ONC will coordinate the identification, assessment, and determination of the best available interoperability standards and implementation specifications for industry use for specific health care purposes.
