The Draft Federal Health IT Strategic Plan: What’s in it, and Why it’s Important
March 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Dan Golder, DDS, MBA, Principal, and Larry Katzovitz, Senior Advisor, Impact Advisors. The draft “2020-2025 Federal Health IT Strategic Plan” from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) outlines federal health information technology (health IT) goals, objectives and strategies for the next five years. Once finalized, the plan “will serve as a roadmap for federal agencies and drive private sector alignment. Agency officials will use it to prioritize resources, align and coordinate efforts across agencies, signal priorities to the private sector, and benchmark and assess change over time.” Dan and Larry will provide a high-level overview of the provisions and content of the Draft Strategic Plan including the plan’s Goals, Objectives and Strategies; discuss the implications for providers, patients and health systems; highlight potential implications for other legislative efforts such as the 21st Century Cures Act, and share the “Top 5 things” that providers and healthcare organizations should be doing now to prepare.
