According to ONC, all workgroup meetings will be available via webcast. For instructions on how to listen via telephone or Web, visit http://healthit.hhs.gov.

In addition, audio files of FACA Committee meetings and the workgroup meetings will be available on the ONC website within 24 to 48 hours following the conclusion of each meeting, it says. A draft transcript of the meetings will be available within 5 to 8 business days. All transcripts will be marked and considered “draft” until they are reviewed and approved by the committee or workgroup members.
