US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Releases Updated Federal Health IT Strategic Plan 2015–2020 
This week, HHS released a report, Federal Health IT Strategic Plan 2015-2020 , which represents the collective strategy of federal offices that use or influence the use of health information technology. The plan aims to improve the health information technology infrastructure, help transform healthcare delivery, and improve individual and community health. The final plan reflects input from more than 400 public comments and provides a blueprint for federal partners to implement strategies that will support the nation’s development of secure health information technology infrastructure.
The strategic goals of the plan are:
- Advance person-centered health and self-management
- Transform healthcare delivery and community health
- Foster research, scientific knowledge and innovation
- Enhance the United States health information technology infrastructure
Over the next five years, the plan’s federal partners will assess their individual progress on efforts to use health IT to achieve plan goals.
