In October, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) participated in a day-long conference, “Putting the IT in Transitions,” hosted by the John A. Hartford Foundation, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and Kaiser Permanente. Key participants included many individuals and organizations widely known in the fields of health services research and care transitions, and featured Joanne Lynn, Director, Altarum Institute Center for Elder Care and Advanced Illness, as well as many other leaders working to find ways to use health information technology to improve care transitions. A summary of the meeting, including discussion topics that participants agreed should form the basis for a shared agenda, is available and can be downloaded here.
