Evaluation of the information technology professionals in health care (“workforce”) program – summative report – March 2014

Presented to: Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, Department of Health and Human Services, by University of Chicago

Extract from the executive summary:

“To help address the increasing and evolving demands of the current health care and policy environments, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) developed the Information Technology (IT) Professionals in Health Care Program (referred to as the “Workforce Program”). The Workforce Program was authorized under Section 3016 of the Public Health Service Act (PHSA), as added by Title XIII in Division A of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. The program’s primary goal is to rapidly and sustainably train a new workforce of health IT professionals to help providers implement and optimize electronic health records (EHRs) to improve health care quality, safety, and cost-efficiency.”
