The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology on Thursday released a paper outlining its 10-year vision for achieving a nationwide interoperable health IT infrastructure.

"This paper is an invitation to health IT stakeholders--clinicians, hospitals, public health, technology developers, payers, researchers, policymakers, individuals, and many others--to join ONC in figuring out how we can collectively achieve interoperability across the health IT ecosystem," states the 13-page document. ONC defines an interoperable health IT ecosystem as one that "makes the right data available to the right people at the right time across products and organizations in a way that can be relied upon and meaningfully used by recipients."
