Techopedia explains Federal Information Technology Strategic Plan of 2011-2015

The Federal Information Technology Strategic Plan of 2011-2015 was first published in 2009. It was created based on two major pieces of legislation: The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

It was left open for public comments, critiques and improvement suggestions from 2009 to 2010. The act was implemented by the U.S. Department of the Office of the National Coordinator along with other agencies including the Health IT Policy Committee and the private IT sector as it relates to policies included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which mandated electronic health record interoperability nationwide by the year 2015.

To meet the increasing need for specific IT professionals, the strategic plan is expected to provide more health informatics careers through university-based training programs in colleges and universities nationwide. This is being accomplished through generous federal grant provisions.
