Federal Health Architecture (FHA)

The Federal Health Architecture (FHA) is an E-Government Line of Business (LoB) initiative designed to bring together the decision makers in federal health IT for inter-agency collaboration -- resulting in effective health information exchange (HIE), enhanced interoperability among federal health IT systems and efficient coordination of shared services. FHA also supports federal agency adoption of nationally-recognized standards and policies for efficient, secure HIE.

Established as an Office of Management and Budget E-Government LoB in 2004, FHA reaches out to more than 20 federal agencies to advance the national agenda for health IT.
