The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology today released its final 2016 Interoperability Standards Advisory, intended to provide an updated list of the “best available” standards and implementation specifications to meet specific interoperability needs for clinical health IT. The final 2016 Standards Advisory includes a “projected additions” section to identify new interoperability needs suggested by stakeholders; and a summary of public comments that were not incorporated into the final advisory and ONC’s planned action or rationale for the exclusion from the final version.
