ONC Reaches Out with Health IT Buzz

by John Moore | November 24, 2009

Yesterday, Dr. Blumenthal, head of the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) who is tasked with the roll-out (setting policy) for all that HIT stimulus funding under the HITECH Act, launched his own Blog: Health IT Buzz.  With over 20 comments so far, this Blog has generated a ready following.  Now the question is: Can he/ONC maintain momentum and truly engage the HIT public at large?  A quick scan of the comments revealed not a single comment from an HIT vendor (though there were a few from systems integrators).

Good to see this type of outreach by ONC and do hope that this forum lends itself to a deeper engagement with all stakeholders in HIT, consumers included.
