Eric Fader was quoted in an article, "Federal Advisers Likely to Push for Better Health Data Exchange," published in Bloomberg BNA's Health IT Law & Industry Report. The article discussed the Government Accountability Office's recent announcement of the first 15 appointments to the Health Information Technology (HIT) Advisory Committee. The newly formed committee, which replaces two other existing committees, was created to advise the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology on policies to create health IT infrastructure that improves electronic access to, exchange of, and use of patient health data. "The GAO has recruited a nice group of appointees, diverse in both their educational and professional backgrounds, as one would expect from a nonpartisan agency," Fader told Bloomberg BNA. When the committee eventually makes recommendations, Fader added, they should carry some weight. However, "obtaining input from everyone in order to reach consensus might be like herding cats, so I wouldn't expect anything concrete from the committee for some time."
