On Tuesday, 29 January, Cerner CEO Neal Patterson testified before a joint hearing of the members of the federal HIT Policy and HIT Standards Committees in Washington, D.C. Patterson was part of a group of industry experts offering statements on the barriers and opportunities related to health information exchanges (HIEs) in the United States. In September, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT ONC confirmed that the ONC will be providing guidelines, rather than a formal rule, to guide the operation of HIEs.
