April 8, 2015 | Strategic Insights for Health System
The American Hospital Association (AHA) has issued comments to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) regarding ONC's Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap. "While the AHA agrees with ONC's aspirations for the future, it is concerned that the roadmap is not sufficiently grounded in an assessment of present realities or focused enough on the steps that will enable . . . stakeholders to travel from the present regulatory, clinical and technology environment to the future state envisioned," states AHA.
