Overview

The NITRD NCO provides staff support to the information-sharing and strategy-setting activities of the Health and Information Technology Research and Development (HITRD) Interagency Working Group. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of HITRD, Federal agencies funding work in this group do not presently report budgets under one specific NITRD PCA but rather report under several PCAs, depending on the principal focus areas of their work.

HITRD focuses on R&D efforts that will lead to more efficient and effective healthcare and improve the quality of American lives through technologies that support effective health monitoring; individualized screening, diagnosis, and treatment; disease prevention; disaster and emergency response; and broad access to health and healthcare information and resources. HITRD activities also contribute to building and sustaining a vibrant community of professional health IT researchers and practitioners.

HITRD member agencies report their HITRD-related R&D investments and activities in the following PCAs:

Other agencies participating in the HITRD IWG are DHA, FDA, HRSA, NIH, ONC, and VA.
