    I notice the ONC Strategic Health IT Plan is several years old. Written back in 2011 and only looking out until 2015 – more of a short range plan. Is ONC going to tweak and update the plan annually as most other organizations do? By now the plan should be looking out to 2018. That would be very helpful.

      Mr. Groen,

      Thank you for your comment. ONC has begun the process of updating the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan to look out to 2018. Updates to the strategic plan will be posted to HealthIT.gov.

    I’m curious about the type of EHR systems being used by FQHC clinics. I saw where the use of the ‘open source’ VistA system, or variants of the system like RPMS, have now spread to over 1500 federal, state, and local government healthcare facilities across the U.S. – as well as a growing number of private sector facilities. How many FQHC clinics are using some version of VistA versus those using more costly commercial EHR solutions. That information would be helpful. See the following GIS map of VistA Installations https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?snapid=S935808t8PD

      Mr. Groen,

      We currently do not have information on FQHC clinics and EHR systems. It is worth exploring. Thanks for your input.
