New interoperability plan called ambitious, necessary by health IT leaders
by Joseph Conn
Healthcare IT community leaders are reacting favorably to the government’s new plan to improve the interoperability of health information technology systems.
“I think the overall tone is very positive,” said Jennifer Covich Bordenick, CEO of the eHealth Initiative, a Washington, D.C.-based promoter of health IT. “We want to make sure this is a public-private effort. The government can’t do this alone and that sounds like what we’re aiming for.”
