Keynote: Micky Tripathi, PhD, MPP,  National Coordinator for Health, Information Technology, US Department of Health and Human Services Panel Discussion: Emerging Federal Agency Efforts in Technology and Data for Health Centers Health centers are increasingly being recognized not just as the US healthcare safety net, but also as sources of innovation in health IT, patient engagement and cultural competency, and as leaders in the dual challenges of addressing social drivers of health (SDOH) and health inequities. Federal agencies are working rapidly to modernize legacy reporting programs, creating programs to help improve the delivery of care through the effective use of health IT and by improving standards for technology and data.  This session features federal officials whose agencies are engaged in working with health centers to address data and technology challenges, and whose programs and scope affect health centers on a daily basis. These speakers will discuss how their agencies hope to address data quality and health IT product challenges with health centers. NACHC welcomes federal leadership from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Health Resources and Services Administration to discuss data and reporting system modernization among other topics.
