The Health Information Technology Standards Committee, an influential advisory body to the Department of Health and Human Services in setting health IT policies including the meaningful use program, is seeking nominations for 10 new industry stakeholder members.

The current terms of 10 members soon are expiring. HITSC members make recommendations for standards, implementation specifications and certification criteria for electronic health records. Along with the Health IT Policy Committee, they also advise on a range of other HIT issues.

Nominations can be made on behalf of certain individuals, and individuals can nominate themselves. Nominees should have experience in underserved areas, telehealth, behavioral health, nursing informatics, data exchange, long-term care, privacy, vendor issues, research, provider organizations, or health plans, according to a Feb. 12 Federal Register notice.

Nominations must be received by noon on March 6 and terms last three years. For an application and more information on expectations, click here. Additional questions can be sent to
