Recognizing the success and potential of the Blue Button, in 2012, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) within the US Department of Health and Human Services took on the responsibility for taking it nationwide, in collaboration with the VA, the White House, and a host of other public and private sector leaders. Blue Button is an important component of engaging and empowering individuals and their families as partners in their health through information technology. As of October 1st, Meaningful Use 2 will be in effect and as a result an increasing number of patients will have the ability to view, download, and share their data electronically. To meet the demand, we are developing a consumer facing site, called the Blue Button Hub, to help with the data and app discovery process. The portfolio of standards supporting this initiative is clearly outlined on the Blue Button+ Implementation guide. Blue Button will be the vehicle for change in how data flows in healthcare, join the movement and share the vision to enable better experiences for the patient.
