Upcoming Listening Sessions in Portland, OR to Inform the New Electronic Health Record (EHR) Reporting Program

Stop by an upcoming public listening session here in Portland, OR to provide input on the new EHR Reporting Program, which will provide publicly-available, no-cost, comparative information on certified health IT available on the market.

In the 21st Century Cures Act of 2016, Congress directed the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to establish a new EHR Reporting Program, which the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) is currently developing. The goal of this program is to provide publicly-available, comparative information about certified health IT features related to security, usability, interoperability, conformance to certification testing, and other areas in order to improve transparency of the market.

The federal Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) has contracted with the Urban Institute and its subcontractor, HealthTech Solutions, to obtain stakeholder input on how to develop the EHR Reporting Program through public listening sessions across the country. Input from people like you will help determine:

  • What information should developers of certified health IT report? What information from users could be made available?
  • How that information is collected
  • How this information will be disseminated to the public (for example, would you prefer a product comparison website, data in a spreadsheet, or something else?)
