  1. Well the true irrelevance of the ONC is fully defined. The ONC is nothing more than a career move to politically connected people. Ms DeSalvo and her predecessors have not given their positions enough time to be effective. What they have done is throw a great deal of uncertainty in an already confused market. MU, ICD10 and Obamacare will now be under scrutiny again. Oh and did I mention the 10 year interoperability plan. Typical government agency that has a name but no purpose.
