Washington-based non-profit eHealth Initiative (eHI) has released the eHealth Initiative Blueprint: Building Consensus for Common Action, representing consensus on a shared vision and a set of principles, strategies and actions for improving health and healthcare through IT.

eHI says Blueprint Phase I offers consensus in five areas: engaging consumers; transforming care delivery; improving population health; aligning financial and other incentives; and managing privacy, security, and confidentiality.

In Phase II of the Blueprint process, eHI will disseminate the Blueprint, support its implementation, facilitate the sharing of best practices, and gain further input from additional stakeholders at the national and local levels, says the organization. In addition, eHI says it will encourage national dialogue to reach agreement on those areas for which there is not yet consensus.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
