ONC has developed an improved Health IT Legislation and Regulations section on healthit.gov. A new legislation section discusses the HITECH Act and other key laws related to health IT. The improved regulations section organizes ONC’s Standards and Certification Criteria rules, provides ONC regulations resources, and links to other related health IT regulations. The new content provides policy researchers and implementers a central reference point for the legislation and regulations that guide ONC’s work.
