The Health Information Technology and Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH Act) sets forth a plan for advancing the appropriate use of health information technology to improve the quality of care and establish a foundation for healthcare reform. Over the past few years, ONC has invested resources in developing the Nationwide Health Information Network to define the standards, specifications, implementation guidelines, policies and operational infrastructure that will enable the secure exchange of interoperable health information in the United States. The Nationwide Health Information Network is an enabler to make the HITECH priorities to improve quality care, expedite care coordination and reduce costs achievable.
