ONC is striving to recruit the best qualified individuals to actively participate in its FACAs: the HIT Standards Committee (HITSC) and the HIT Policy Committee (HITPC). ONC has developed the application database to allow anyone interested in contributing HIT expertise to apply for membership consideration. ONC will use this database to fill expiring committee member terms (during open nomination times only), form new workgroups, and to refresh the membership of current workgroups.
