The ONC’s Interoperability Roadmap Drivers 2015 – 2024

ONC’s Interoperability Roadmap Drivers 

Interoperability is seen as one of the most significant obstacles to realizing the full potential of health IT. Having just attended the HIMSS 2016 conference in Las Vegas, this buzzword from years ago is STILL a big buzzword in the industry. It seems we have made some advances in sharing data, but real challenges remain. Patients are still handed paper copies of charts to take to referral doctors, and some systems just can’t share information. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) has defined a roadmap strategy to achieve alternative payment methods over time. As you can see, interoperability is a key component of the strategy.

This infographic describes the ONC’s framework for achieving short and long-term health IT interoperability goals.
