• Advocacy Focus: Health Information Technology (HIT)

    HIT and Health Care Reform

    The AAFP supports efforts to make information technologies —  a critical element in improving U.S. health care delivery — more accessible and affordable to primary health care providers, who see the majority of the nation's patients.

    The Academy also lobbies to protect patient privacy and advocates for standards and protocols that allow health care information to flow freely among physicians, payers, patients, and pharmacies.
