eHealth Initiative Releases Blueprint Representing Consensus on an Action Plan for Transforming U.S. Healthcare Using Health IT
Date:10/10/2007

/p>

"The Blueprint is intended to be a living document that evolves over time as stakeholders identify areas that can be operationalized, as well as develop those areas where consensus and leadership is still needed," said Janet Marchibroda, chief executive officer, eHealth Initiative and eHealth Initiative Foundation. "While many reports call solely for government action, the eHI Blueprint is also focused on what each stakeholder in healthcare can do -- right now -- to drive healthcare improvement through health information technology."

The Blueprint recognizes and builds upon the work of many projects and initiatives both within the federal government and private sector, and references this work within the "overview of key initiatives" and "resources" sections of the document, offering additional references to healthcare leaders.
