ACC’s Informatics & Health Information Technology (IHIT) Task Force in Action
Lack of interoperability across health information technology (HIT) has been identified as a leading cause of clinician burnout, but the issue is too great for any one organization to solve. The ACC’s Informatics and HIT Task Force, led by Jeff Westcott, MD, FACC, Task Force Chair, and John Windle, MD, FACC, is convening recognized leaders from a broad coalition of stakeholders, including clinicians, health systems professionals, electronic health information vendors, standards development organizations and more, for a summit on Harmonizing Dataflow and Workflow Across the Clinical Domain , 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., May 4, at Heart House. Featuring sessions on interoperability through semantics and syntax of data elements and the future direction of the National Cardiovascular Data Registry , this live meeting will foster engaging discussion to identify trends, areas of stakeholder agreement and areas for improvement with the goal of creating real-world solutions to achieve true meaningful use of health information technology.
