ONC offers Health IT Playbook

PARCA eNews – Oct. 1, 2016 – The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is releasing its Health IT Playbook to help make using health information technology (health IT) easier for providers so they can get the most out of their technology investment.

The playbook is designed to be intuitive and user-friendly so that providers can easily access key information, such as the new EHR contract guide for preparing to negotiate a new acquisition, an interactive map that can point providers to possible federal support and funding, or ONC and the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR)’s recently updated Security Risk Assessment (SRA) Tool to help providers comply with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule.

Other topics covered in the Playbook include the ONC Health IT Certification Program, health information exchange, alternative payment models, and using health IT in rural settings.

The ONC intends the Playbook to be an ongoing work in progress that will be frequently revised, updated, and expanded through user input and feedback. You can share your feedback by e-mailing
