Subject: Fwd: This Thursday! Informational Call on the ONC EHR Reporting Program Request for Information

Hi All,

I thought I would pass this along. I specifically looked at the Interoperability Standards Advisory pdf to note that EDXL-HAVE and EDXL-TEP were not listed. I know we're stretched, but it would be great if someone, besides me, if I can spare the time, to check this informational call and RFI. I'll try.

Whatâs Happening in Health IT


Join the Informational Call: ONC Request for Information (RFI) for Input on EHR Reporting Program
Section 4002(c) of the 21st Century Cures Act requires HHS to establish an âElectronic Health Record (EHR) Reporting Programâ that provides publically available, comparative information on certified health IT. Last week, ONC issued a RFI for the public to share their views on the components of the EHR Reporting Program, and to provide feedback that will inform the development of EHR Reporting Program criteria and processes as required by the Cures Act.

ONC will host an informational call on September 6 at 2pm ET to provide further details on the RFI and to answer general questions. Space is limited, so be sure to join early. If the webinar reaches capacity, a second webinar will be scheduled. Join the discussion.

The RFI is published in the Federal Register, and ONC encourages stakeholders to provide their comments through the online submission process available there. Comments are due at 5:00 pm ET on October 17, 2018.
