Health IT Fellows

Bios for the incoming Health IT Fellows class are now available on healthit.gov! The Health IT Fellows are a vital component to connect like-minded practices, share lessons learned from the practice field to further enhance Health IT adoption, and act as champions and advocates. They serve as Subject Matter Experts by lending their voices and experiences to ways providers can leverage Health IT to improve consumer engagement and experience in the delivery of patient care; making Meaningful Use meaningful.

The summary reflects information on Meaningful Use Stage 1 and Meaningful Use Stage 2 incentive payments, development of Meaningful Use Stage 3 requirements and the availability of certified products in the vendor market, HIE, workforce programs, patient engagement, health IT and delivery system reform, the effectiveness of health IT, and other topics.
