The AHA today urged the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology to build on its improved platform for the draft 2017 Interoperability Standards Advisory to increase stakeholders’ ability to judge the readiness of specific standards for use in clinical care. Among other actions, AHA urged ONC to provide more information on how it distinguishes mature from emerging standards, the readiness of standards for provider use, and standards and specifications in the pilot stage of implementation. “In addition, the AHA recommends that ONC use the ISA to make publicly available the feedback it receives on the adoption experience of standards and implementation specifications,” wrote Ashley Thompson, AHA senior vice president for public policy analysis and development.
