Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel

E-mail Print PDF
The mission of the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel is to serve as a cooperative partnership between the public and private sectors for the purpose of achieving a widely accepted and useful set of standards specifically to enable and support widespread interoperability among healthcare software applications, as they will interact in a local, regional and national health information network for the United States. One of the recommendations submitted by the Standards Harmonization Collaborative in its response to the ONCHIT1 RFP was the establishment of a Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP). The Panel’s objective is to achieve widely accepted and readily-implemented consensus-based standards that will enable and support widespread interoperability among healthcare information technology, especially as they would interact in a Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) for the United States.
The HITSP will be called upon to identify, prioritize and promote relevant standards using patient-focused (“use-case”) scenarios. In fact, within 30 days of award of the ONCHIT1 contract, an initial set of three use-cases must be submitted to DHHS.
The Panel has been established under the sponsorship of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and will operate with a neutral and inclusive governance model. A Board of Directors representing each of the various interest bodies was elected at the first meeting. Dr. John Halamka, Chief Information Officer of Harvard Medical School, has been selected as the HITSP Chair.
