Government Web site (HHS.gov) Electronic Health Records Workgroup
The American Health Information Community (the Community) recommended that Electronic Health Records (EHR) adoption be its top priority. Therefore, a workgroup was formed to analyze barriers to EHR adoption. The Community further recommended that this workgroup develop a plan to realize a specific charge (deploying a standardized means of accessing/deploying lab results/interpretations) within one year, which is visible to the American public and works towards a broader charge (ensuring widespread adoption of certified EHRs) over time. The meetings of this workgroup are public and meeting materials are available to the public.
