The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has a Health IT Fellows program
. You can also get involved in the Health IT Vanguard program as a Meaningful Use Vanguard
The purpose of the Health IT Fellows (“Fellows”) is to provide grassroots insight and critical feedback/critique of appropriateness, clarity, and effectiveness of resources, tools, and other technical assistance initiatives of the ONC and others geared towards their peers. Fellows are empowered to ensure these and other communications are realistic, authentic, and clear to their colleagues in an effort to ensure that all messages and tools resonate with the provider and practice community. Fellows also act as champions to their provider and practice community colleagues on a local and national scale. Fellows will lend their voice and experience regarding ways providers can leverage Health IT to improve patient engagement and experience in the delivery of patient care, making Meaningful Use meaningful.
The Health IT Fellows are primary care providers and administrators representing a range of organization setting types including small practices, large practices, Critical Access Hospitals, rural clinics, and tribal health organizations. In order to promote relationship development and allow for a mature feedback process, the Fellows have been divided into three tracks which correspond directly with the National Quality Strategy, specifically:
- Patient Safety (NQS priority 1)
- Million Hearts (NQS priority 4)
- Leveraging MU in Community (NQS priority 5)
