Access Health Information Technology for the Future of Health and Care
This HHS website is a portal to information on health IT grant programs, electronic health record privacy and security issues, the Nationwide Health Information Network, the Federal Health Information Technology Standards Committee, and other relevant government resources. Health information technology (health IT) makes it possible for health care providers to better manage patient care through secure use and sharing of health information. Health IT includes the use of electronic health records (EHRs) instead of paper medical records to maintain people’s health information.
