Breaking Down the Federal Health IT Plan (2020-2025) with Seth Pazinski

November 11, 2020: Seth Pazinski from the ONC for HIT joins us to flesh out the heart of the 2020-2025 Federal Health IT Strategic Plan. How can you get your hands on it? What’s the best way to use it? The plan’s mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities using technology and health information that is accessible when and where it matters most. Is there an underlying set of assumptions around the problems that we’re facing? Can the plan reduce current regulatory burdens? What does it mean for the individual to be first? And what expectations does it set for data sharing including privacy and security of information?

Key Points:

  • The six principles that underlie the plan’s strategy [00:05:51] 
  • Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) [00:08:36] 
  • Promote Health and Wellness and Enhance the Delivery and Experience of Care [00:08:55] 
  • One thing we focus on is improving access to smartphones and other technologies amongst at-risk minority, rural, disabled and tribal populations [00:15:10] 
  • Plans for aligning and coordinating efforts that focus on health disparities or social determinants [00:17:00] 
  • ONC did a specific strategy in response to a congressional requirement that was focused on provider burden reduction [00:20:05] 
  • It creates the opportunity for advancements and analytics including machine learning, artificial intelligence and the ability to forecast and have the potential to transform care and improve health [00:23:40]
