 Note about this meeting:The HIT Standards Committee has inaugurated an Implementation Workgroup which is charged with bringing forward “real-world” implementation experience into the HIT Standards Committee recommendations, with special emphasis on strategies to accelerate the adoption of proposed standards, or mitigate barriers, if any. The Implementation Workgroup is holding a public hearing on the topic of Adoption Experiences on Thursday, October 29, 2009, in Washington, DC.
