Health Information Technology: Patient Safety Action & Surveillance Plan – [US] Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) – 1 July 2013

“This Health IT Patient Safety Action and Surveillance Plan (the “Health IT Safety Plan” or “Plan”) addresses the role of health IT within HHS’s commitment to patient safety. Building on the IOM committee’s recommendations, the Plan leverages existing authorities to strengthen patient safety efforts across government programs and the private sector—including patients, health care providers, technology companies, and health care safety oversight bodies. Importantly, the Plan outlines specific and tangible actions through which all stakeholders can fulfill their shared obligation to increase knowledge of the impact of health IT on patient safety, and maximize the safety of health IT and health IT-assisted care.”
