The HIT Policy Committee's Strategic Plan workgroup will hold a three-hour "listening session" to April 6 to get feedback on a draft update to the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan.

The update to a plan issued in 2008 is mandated under the HITECH Act. The new plan will focus on 2011 through 2015, but also lay the groundwork beyond 2015 to create a "learning health system" through effective use of health information technology.

The draft framework, session registration and agenda are available at http://healthit.hhs.gov/portal/server.pt?open=512&objID=1477&mode=2.
