ONC Releases "Health IT for You" Animated Video
Animation from ONC on giving you access to your medical records
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) this week released a 3-minute animated video for consumers that explains how electronic health records (EHRs) and other health information technologies are upgrading healthcare and giving consumers the opportunity to better manage their own health. The video is currently available on www.healthit.gov and it is one of many ONC efforts to increase consumer awareness about the benefits of health IT.
ONC encourages Consumer Consortium members, along with all healthcare stakeholders, to share this animated video far and wide. A Spanish verson of the animation will be available later this summer.
To learn more about the "Health IT for You" video and provide feedback to ONC on that and ONC's other consumer engagement efforts, visit the Health IT Buzz Blog.
