2020 Roadmap | eHealth Initiative

The primary objective of the 2020 Roadmap is to craft a multi-stakeholder solution to enable coordinated efforts by public and private sector organizations to transform care delivery through data exchange and health information technology (health IT). The 2020 Roadmap focuses on the following areas:

  • Interoperability
  • Clinical Motivators and Incentives
  • Data Access and Use


During eHealth Initiative’s first decade, the collective efforts of many stakeholders have improved healthcare through increased use of technology and data. Since the passage of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a tremendous amount of money, time and resources has been invested into optimizing the healthcare system in the U.S. However, many stakeholder groups are questioning the direction in which the public and private sectors are currently heading and raising concerns about the slow pace of improving the quality of care and achieving cost reductions. As we look ahead to the next five years, it is critical to reexamine recent policy, innovation and technology efforts and identify the best path forward towards health system delivery transformation
