The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, working with the Federal Communications Commission and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, is close to completing its mandated report to Congress on a risk-based regulatory framework for health I.T. Officials from the three agencies provided an update on the status of the report at a HIMSS14 panel discussion.

The report is mandated under the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA).
