ONC Continues Blue Button Push With Video Contest

Mary Mosquera | Healthcare IT News | October 3, 2012

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT launched its Blue Button video competition Oct. 1 to create awareness of consumers having easy online access to their health information, and to motivate them in how they might use it.

Many consumers, especially healthy individuals, have not thought about the importance of having 24/7 access to their health information, according to ONC’s announcement in the Federal Register.

ONC invites the public to describe in an entertaining video that runs no longer than two minutes how they have used the Blue Button feature if they have access to it, or how they would use the information and what it would mean to them if they had the capability.
