ONC applications for Health IT advisory board now open

Want to contribute to future heath IT policies and standards? You may now apply to become a member of the new Health Information Technology Advisory Committee (HITAC), part of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC).

Applications for the Department of Health and Human Services appointments on the committee will be accepted until noon (EDT) on August 4, 2017. The ONC encourages interested professionals to fill out a Health IT Advisory Committee Membership Application to be considered as a committee or future task force member.

The 21st Century Cures Act requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to appoint three members; one shall be a representative of HHS and one shall be a public health official. The remaining members will be appointed by the Comptroller General of the United States and the majority and minority leaders of the Senate, and the speaker and minority leader of the House of Representatives.
