ONC Releases Dashboard

Data on outcomes from the Community College Consortia to Educate Health IT Professionals

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) announces the launch of the Health IT Dashboard (available at http://dashboard.healthit.gov) today. The Health IT Dashboard has been established to present key information about the strategy of ONC, its health care innovation grants programs, and available research data tracking the nationwide adoption of health care IT.

“The release of the Health IT Dashboard is a significant milestone and we are glad to welcome the website as a tool for delivering key data to ONC’s stakeholders and the interested public.” said Victor Lazzaro, ONC’s Performance Officer and Director for the Health IT Dashboard projects. The Dashboard uses an interactive package of technologies that allow ONC stakeholders to map, chart, and access the agency’s data.

Currently, the Health IT Dashboard has summary of information about all ONC grant programs, and detailed presentations of performance data for the Health IT Regional Extension Centers and Community College Consortia to Educate Health IT Professionals programs.

CSHIMS Debuts at HIMSS 2012 Conference

37,000 conference goers had an opportunity to be introduced to the  Certified Specialist in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CSHIMS) in February 2012.  The Health Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) christened the new entry level health IT certification and welcomed it into the industry.  Three information sessions, a Career Center presentation, and a place of honor at the HIMSS Communities Open House ensured HIMSS conference participants had a chance to acquaint themselves with the CSHIMS, project staff, and collaborators.  The four day event, held in Las Vegas this year, is the largest education and exhibition in the health IT industry.
