Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology: Leading the Nation into the Future

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is at the forefront of the administration’s health information technology (HIT) efforts. The ONC is an integral resource to the entire health system to support the adoption of HIT and the promotion of nationwide health information exchange to improve healthcare.

ONC is the principal federal entity charged with the coordination of nationwide efforts to implement and use the most advanced HIT and the electronic exchange of health information.

Contracted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to improve healthcare quality in the states of Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee, Qsource is a partner in the ONC’s broad national efforts.

We help providers use HIT to advance prevention coordination through Meaningful Use. We work with providers and offer targeted technical assistance to those experiencing challenges in successfully meeting the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) EHR Incentive Program requirements.

We also assist with value-based payment, quality reporting and physician feedback. We help a wide array of healthcare providers improve their quality and efficiency of care – including Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities (IPFs), PPS-exempt Cancer Hospitals (PCHs), inpatient and outpatient departments of hospitals, physician practices and Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs). Our experts help assess clinical quality of care, care coordination, patient safety, patient and caregiver experience of care and population/community health and efficiency.

We thank our national partners like the ONC for providing the dedicated leadership needed to improve healthcare quality and equity for older Americans and look forward to continued advancements and success.
