Health Information Technology R&D is an interdisciplinary focus area that supports more efficient and effective technologies that support health monitoring; individualized screening, diagnosis, and treatment; disease prevention; disaster and emergency response; and broad access to health and healthcare information and resources.




Overview

The Health Information Technology R&D (HITRD) Interagency Working Group was formed in 2010 to coordinate Federal R&D for improving medical, functional, and public health outcomes across 15 participating agencies. Guided by the four fundamental challenges described in the Federal Health Information Technology Research & Development Strategic Framework, the IWG advances R&D by coordinating agency plans and activities, promoting collaborations, and providing a forum for exchanging information and articulating R&D needs to policy-makers and decision-makers.
