ONC announces Query Health Initiative 'concerts'
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) has announced its "Summer Concert" series highlighting development work on distributed population queries. 

Throughout August, thought leaders in the field will be presenting their work related to distributed population queries, which can be used for research, quality measures and syndromic surveillance. “The results of distributed population queries are aggregate health measures from close to the source, keeping protected health information secure,” ONC stated.

The web-based presentations will lead up to the Sept. 6 launch of the ONC's Query Health initiative, which will establish standards for distributed population queries for EHRs.

The presentations begin. Aug. 3 and run through Sept. 6. The lineup can be accessed by clicking here
