The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is accepting public comments on the draft 2016 Interoperability Standards Advisory (2016 Advisory). The comment period will be open for 45 days and will end at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 6, 2015. Public comments will be used to update this draft in order to publish a final 2016 Advisory by the end of 2015.
The draft 2016 Advisory represents feedback we received from public comment on the 2015 Interoperability Standards Advisory as well as many of the recommendations from the HIT Standards Committee.
The Interoperability Standards Advisory process represents the model by which the ONC will coordinate the identification, assessment, and determination of the “best available” interoperability standards and implementation specifications for industry use to fulfill specific clinical health IT interoperability needs. The 2016 Advisory remains focused on clinical health information technology interoperability.
