Health IT panel seeks feedback on interoperability specs

The Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP), the organization that seeks to reconcile mismatched and conflicting health data standards, is asking for public comment on three draft interoperability specifications and a use case for medication management.

The four documents will be the basis of the organization’s next set of recommendations to the American Health Information Community, the advisory panel led by Mike Leavitt, secretary of the Health and Human Services Department.

The interoperability specifications address issues of quality and consumer access to health care information. Comments will help the HITSP technical committees select appropriate standards and aid in the development of detailed guidance on how to implement the standards, according to an HITSP announcement.

The public can submit comments online using HITSP’s automated tracking system through Oct. 16.
