  4. Federal Health IT Strategic Plan

    This Plan focuses on federal efforts to advance the collection, sharing, and use of interoperable health information to improve health care, individual, community and public health, and advance research.

    Strategic Plan


Health information technology (health IT) makes it possible for health care providers to better manage patient care through secure use and sharing of health information. Health IT includes the use of electronic health records (EHRs) instead of paper medical records to maintain people's health information.
