This is a perfect opportunity for people who are concerned about how information is collected, disseminated and used (particularly in the context of healthcare) to get involved and share their ideas.
Please log on today to register your opinions on how we can use information technology to improve healthcare, while safeguarding privacy. Thousands of experts, advocates and citizens are participating. Ensure your voice is heard too. The results of this online dialogue will be compiled into a report to the Federal CIO Council and the incoming Administration.
More about the project:
Beginning today and through Nov. 3, just before a critical presidential election, you can join a unique experiment in 21st century democracy. The National Academy of Public Administration, on behalf of the Federal CIO Council, the Office of Management and Budget, and the General Services Administration, will host an online national dialogue that demonstrates a fundamentally different approach to the work of government.
This national discussion will engage a diverse group of voices in tackling one of the key issues confronting the nation’s health care system: How can we use information technology to improve the way patients interact with the healthcare system, while safeguarding their right to privacy? Participants will have an opportunity to discuss challenges, generate breakthrough ideas, and recommend principles that will be presented to the next Administration.
