Recommendations to the National Coordinator for Health IT

The Health IT Advisory Committee (HITAC), a committee established in accordance with the federal advisory committee act (FACA), provides recommendations on health IT policy and standards issues to the National Coordinator for consideration. A formal transmittal letter must transmit the recommendations from the HITAC to the National Coordinator. Once a transmittal letter is sent from the committee to the National Coordinator, the National Coordinator can then determine the disposition of the recommendations.
