June 7 is National Health IT Day. I will celebrate the day by attending the keynote speeches by Former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Dr. David Brailer, and others.

June 13 is the date for the House Federal Agency and Workforce Organization Subcommittee’s hearing on H.R. 4859, the Family Friendly Health Information Technology Act of 2006. The lead article in this week’s issue of the Federal Times discusses this bill and OPM’s HIT issues described in the 2007 benefit and rate proposal call letter.
