The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has released a plan for developing a national Health IT Safety Center, seeking to define the center’s focus, functions, governance and overall value.

The mission of the center would be to serve “as a place where stakeholders—both individuals and organizations, in the private sector (nonprofit and for-profit) and government—work together to create a learning system committed to two main objectives: using health IT to make care safer, and continuously improving the safety of health IT.” To support an “optimal” HIT Safety Center, the roadmap estimates that a funding level of $17.8 -$20.6 million over five years will be required.
