ONC releases 2017 Interoperability Standards Advisory
By Mike Miliard
The Office of the National Coordinator for IT on Dec. 20 released its Interoperability Standards Advisory for 2017, collecting essential standards and implementation specifications for technology developers and clinicians to know.
Whether they're required by specific federal programs or simply useful to furthering the spread of interoperability, these specs are all meant to enable easier sharing of clinical data, says ONC.
"The ISA is a key step toward achieving the goals we have outlined with our public and private sector partners in the Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap, as well as the Interoperability Pledge announced earlier this year," said National Coordinator Vindell Washington, MD, in a statement.
