New This Week on HealthIT.gov

In This Issue

We have almost made it through another National Health IT Week (#NHITWeek), but in case you missed some of the highlights, check out the #NHITWeek page at HealthIT.gov. There you will find the replay of the 4th Annual Consumer Summit (which was a hit, by the way), no worries, we've got the video. And we launched new videos and resources on the revamped #bluebutton pages.

But wait! There's still more to come! Friday is Safety Day, so read on about all the safety-related stuff we've got going on to wrap it up!

You still have time to join the conversation online @ONC_HealthIT #NHITWeek and follow the week's planned activities at HealthIT.gov and www.healthitweek.org.

ONC 2014 Annual Meeting

Blogging, blogging, blogging

Read the latest from Amy Helwig, M.D. and Judy Murphy, R.N., two of the clinicians in the Office of Clinical Quality and Safety, about what we've learned about safety and electronic health records (EHRs). In short "we have a better understanding of the types of safety events related to health IT and, more importantly, the interventions available to prevent unintended consequences of the use of health IT tools."

Health IT Safety Progress Report

It has been a little more than one year since we published the Health IT Patient Safety Action and Surveillance Plan. On our newly redesigned Health IT Safety pages you can find anew report that looks at the progress that has been made in improving the safe implementation and use of health IT, as well as tools, resources, information, and data to Learn, Improve and Lead.

Safety has always been more of a journey than a destination and the improved webpages are a perfect place to get started on the right path.

New Data Segmentation Info

Just in case you missed it, we wanted to plug our Data Segmentation for Privacy (DS4P) Initiative one more time! Patients and providers alike are concerned about the privacy and security of patients' electronic health information. That's why we sponsored the DS4P. Data segmentation technology provides patients and providers with more detailed control over patient electronic health information.

Whether you are a patient, provider, or health IT software developer, you'll want to learn more about data segmentation and the DS4P initiative. Learn more about this important project and watch the video.

Interoperability Roadmap

Please check out our Wiki page on the Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap. We want you to weigh in about the way forward on interoperability. This is one way you can weigh in on the path forward.

Quality Data Model

The Quality Data Model (QDM) describes clinical concepts in a standardized format to enable electronic clinical quality measurement. The model is the backbone for representing quality measures criteria that are currently used by stakeholders involved in electronic quality measurement development and reporting. Stakeholders include measure developers, federal agencies, health IT vendors, standards organizations, informatics experts, providers, and researchers. The QDM is currently being harmonized with other relevant clinical decision support (CDS) standards. The latest version of the Quality Data Model specification, Version 4.1.1, was published in September 2014 and contains numerous changes.
