In July 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hosted a landmark workshop asking what federal authorities, including those that approve health IT (HIT) products and devices, can do to achieve greater alignment and interoperability. This Listening Session, titled “Interoperability of Medical Devices, Data, and Platforms to Enhance Patient Care,” included many thought leaders in this area, specialty physicians, vendors and policymakers. The multi-agency initiative, held on the 10th anniversary of the FDA’s seminal workshop on interoperability, was led by the Health Information Technology Research and Development (HITRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG)of the U.S. National Coordination Office (NCO) for Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD).
