Healhcare Information Technology Standards Panel
HealthCare Information Technology Standards Panel
Did You Know....

The first set of HITSP interoperability standards were recognized by the HHS Secretary in January 2008.


Members of the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) work together to define the necessary functional components and standards – as well as gaps in standards – which must be resolved to enable the interoperability of healthcare data. Standards developing organizations (SDOs) and consortia with HIT expertise have a key role to play in this process.

HITSP does not itself engage in standards development. Rather, Panel members work together to identify voluntary consensus standards that enable and support widespread interoperability among healthcare information technology, and analyze how those standards can work together to accomplish key work areas – or Use Cases – identified by the American Heath Information Community (AHIC).

By actively participating in the HITSP process, SDOs are not only able to influence the content of Interoperability Specifications (IS), but they can also learn about market trends and gain networking opportunities. This can lead to the development of new markets for their standards, services and technologies, as well as strategic positioning within those markets.
