This World AIDS Day – Reflecting on Health IT as a Tool...

1 December 2022

December 1st is World AIDS Day, when we collectively remember those who died due to AIDS-related illnesses and renew our commitment to work together to end the HIV epidemic and support people with HIV. This year’s theme, “Putting Ourselves to the Test: Achieving Equity to End HIV,” emphasizes accountability and action. Collaborative, community-based, cross sector, and whole-of-government approaches that address clinical and social determinants of health (SDOH) are needed to support communities disproportionally affected by HIV and achieve national HIV/AIDS goals.

STAR HIE Program Helps Unlock Powerful Public Health...

29 November 2022

ONC launched the Strengthening the Technical Advancement and Readiness of Public Health Agencies via Health Information Exchange (STAR HIE) Program in 2020 using funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The program was expanded in 2021 to increase support for efforts to improve vaccination data sharing between jurisdictional Immunization Information Systems (IIS) and HIEs. The West Virginia Health Information Network (WVHIN) was among the 22 recipients that received a combined $20 million in funds from ONC via the CARES Act.

Addressing Evolving Health Information Technology Needs...

15 November 2022

Hot off the presses, the Pediatric Health Information Technology: Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Informational Resource (NAS IR) [PDF – 808 KB] is a new resource from ONC to support pediatric care and practice settings specific to neonatal abstinence syndrome. The NAS IR builds upon prior efforts included in the ONC Pediatric Health Information Technology Informational Resources (IR) for health IT developers and for health care providers, and includes information about the implementation of health IT and its use as part of delivering health care to infants experiencing withdrawal after maternal exposure to opioids and other substances during pregnancy.

31 October 2022

This blog post is co-authored with Jennifer Roberts, Assistant Director for Health Technologies, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Grail Sipes, Assistant Director for Biomedical Regulatory Policy, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the need for a coordinated clinical trials enterprise, one that can swiftly characterize emerging viral threats and evaluate the effectiveness of vaccines, therapeutics, and other countermeasures across a diversity of trial participants.

Two Sides of the AI/ML Coin in Health Care

19 October 2022

As we’ve previously discussed, algorithms—step by step instructions (rules) to perform a task or solve a problem, especially by a computer—have been widely used in health care for decades.  One clear use of these algorithms is through evidence-based, clinical decision support interventions (DSIs). Today, we see a rapid growth in data-based, predictive DSIs, which use models created using machine learning (ML) algorithms or other statistical approaches that analyze large volumes of real-world data (called “training data”) to find patterns and make recommendations.

26 September 2022

July 26, 2022, marked the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In celebration of this landmark civil rights law, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) published a report called Improving Data Infrastructure for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD).
In 2017, there were 7.4 million individuals with IDD in the United States. Individuals with IDD often receive care in both traditional health care settings like hospitals,

Accelerating Patient-Centered Outcomes Research through Synthetic Health Data Generation

19 September 2022

Real world health data are critical for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR). However, it’s often difficult, expensive, and time consuming for researchers to access real-world clinical health data because of privacy concerns, security restrictions, and usage issues. Although PCOR researchers, health information technology developers, and informaticists often depend on anonymized or de-identified clinical health data for testing theories, data models, algorithms, and prototype innovations, re-identification of anonymized data remains a possible security risk. Synthetic health data can provide a no-risk data source to complement research and support testing needs until real clinical health data are available.

Minimizing Risks and Maximizing Rewards from Machine Learning

7 September 2022

When talking about artificial intelligence (AI) today, people are usually referring to predictive models—often driven by machine learning (ML) techniques—that “learn” from historic data and make predictions, recommendations, or classifications (outputs) which inform or drive decision making. The power of ML is in its enormous flexibility. You can build a model to predict or recommend just about anything, and we have seen it transform many sectors.
The potential for ML and related technologies in health care is exciting.

APIs for Research: Perspectives from Providers

3 August 2022

The Cures Act Final Rule includes regulatory requirements to implement secure, standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs). To support the acceleration of API adoption in health care, ONC has published a series of perspective reports that focus on key stakeholders and their views on APIs.
Accelerating APIs for Scientific Discovery: Provider Perspectives Brief  [PDF – 740 KB] is now available. This fourth and final report explored provider perspectives on API-based data sharing in a rapidly evolving electronic health data ecosystem.
