On behalf of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT

By JJ Minder joseph.minder@ketchum.com

Hello ME-P,

As I’m sure you’re aware, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) launched its brand new website HealthIT.gov last August. The website is designed to be the leading national resource on health information technology (health IT).

Link Update Notice

We see that the Medical Executive Post website currently links to ONC’s old policy site HealthIT.hhs.gov from the post titled: “Asking Uncle Sam…Why Health IT.”

Content currently on the HealthIT.hhs.gov site will be removed and merged to the new site by November 1st, 2012. We wanted to give you prior notice so you will be able to replace this link with a link to our new site HealthIT.gov


We really appreciate you changing the link address to HealthIT.gov.

Please feel free to contact me at joseph.minder@ketchum.com if you have any questions or comments.

  1. ONC Chief Farzad Mostashari States Nobody Has Transformed Care Delivery Without IT

    Last week, the Health Forum and American Hospital Association Leadership Summit was held in San Francisco, CA. The overall theme of the leadership summit was getting from the first curve to the second curve creating the value proposition on how hospitals implement health information technology.


    During the summit, Matthew Weinstock, Senior Editor of Hospitals and Health Networks sat down with ONC Chief Farzad Mostashari, M.D. to discuss some of the trends he sees in health IT implementation.

    Editor’s Note: We appreciate the email notification from JJ Minder regarding the ONC posted above.


  2. Mostashari to investigate EHR overbilling accusations

    Did you know that in the wake of charges that electronic health records encourage doctors and hospitals to overbill Medicare, and increase the likelihood of fraud, National Coordinator for Health IT czar Farzad Mostashari will investigate the matter according to the Center for Public Integrity.

  3. ONC Offers Cash Prizes

    Did you know that software developers can pocket up to $50,000 in prize money for coming up with a health IT application that will facilitate reporting of safety incidents in hospital and ambulatory settings?

  4. The US Department of HHS requests feedback … My patriotic duty and my pleasure!

    Outside dentistry, even HHS now agrees that EHRs are an expensive disappointment. Inside dentistry, EDR stakeholders are hunkering down behind faux professionalism – seemingly clueless that they no longer have the power to hide information from dentists. Seriously, if someone were to base an esoteric sitcom on the fallibility of political-correctness in a dysfunctional industry, pompous healthcare IT stakeholders are powerless to prevent seepage of grin material.

    When taxpayers inevitably question HHS’s recklessness, they deserve to know that the federal EHR incentive program was founded on either vendor-friendly ineptness or politically-correct fraud. Starting long ago, Newt Gingrich, HHS and other HIT stakeholders often quoted happy findings from a 2005 RAND Corporation study in order to win taxpayer funding for interoperable EHRs. Even as RAND officials kept up their end of the bargain by assuring lawmakers that HIT would save $77 billion and 100,000 lives a year, there were suspicions that the study’s reliability was compromised by inappropriate influence from the EHR stakeholders who not only funded the study, but helped select its happy data sets.

    The passage of time has since confirmed that the RAND study is bogus if not fraudulent. HHS responds by sending forth an apologist named Dr. Doug Fridsma, Chief Science Officer and Director of the Office of Science & Technology. Yesterday, Dr. Fridsma describes the official HHS excuses in “Health IT as an Ultra Large-Scale System” on the HealthIT Buzz, a US Dept. of HHS website.


    My comment to Dr. Fridsma following his article that was posted on a taxpayer-funded website, “awaits moderation”:


    Dear Dr. Doug Fridsma,

    As a dentist in a profession often overlooked, I thank you for inviting candid discussion about problems that have been encountered in the effort to achieve interoperable EHRs among ALL healthcare providers. You mention ONC’s three “Approaches to Health IT.” The first two include picking and supporting flexible IT standards while the third invites feedback: “Finally, we have tried to take an incremental approach that engages the community to help us identify problems and quickly come up with new solutions.” The invitation is reassuring since the ONC clearly must embrace transparency before the solution to interoperability is possible.

    First of all, HHS seems to blame unforeseen complexities for achieving less progress in interoperability than promised. I assume the vendor-friendly 2005 RAND study was of little help in predicting a single problem.

    As a member of the community, I volunteer to help the ONC identify another hidden problem. I have repeatedly asked those who promote interoperability in dentistry – including EHR vendors as well as the American Dental Association – if there is any evidence that electronic dental records offer dentists a return on investment over paper records. So far, not one industry leader has been willing to discuss possible savings for dental patients. What’s more, in consideration of the epidemic level of breaches of patients’ identities, I have also asked if there is any evidence that EDRs are safer than paper dental records. Again, no response.

    As a matter of fact, it was these questions about EHRs’ cost and safety that caused Christy Choi, the moderator of Health IT and Electronic Health Records LinkedIn group, to block my feedback. Believe it or not, the LinkedIn moderator who censored this provider’s concerns is actually a federal employee. Christy Choi’s real job is Web Manager at the ONC. Small world.

  5. If you want honest feedback, ONC, you are going to have to stop censoring complaints about ONC’s censorship of feedback.

  6. Advice to the New National Coordinator

    In the wake of Karen DeSalvo’s departure, former ONC official Jacob Reider argues it is time for a reset.
