About AHRQ's Health IT Portfolio
AHRQ’s Health IT Portfolio’s mission is to produce and disseminate evidence about how health IT can make health care safer, higher quality, more accessible, equitable, and affordable, and to work within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and with other partners to make sure that the evidence is understood and used.
