From October 27th through November 3rd, 2008, over 3,000 interested citizens from across the United States and 80 foreign countries participated in a National Dialogue on Health IT and Privacy, hosted by the National Academy of Public Administration. Dialogue participants came together in this online forum to tackle the question: How should we expand the use of information technology and protect personal privacy to improve health care?
The results of the Dialogue were then reviewed by a Panel of Fellows of the National Academy of Public Administration. We are pleased to share their final report with you; it contains not only the findings and recommendations of the Panel, but also a valuable set of lessons learned throughout the process.

Hosted by the National Academy of Public Administration, and sponsored by the Office of Management and Budget, General Services Administration, and Federal Chief Information Officers Council, the National Dialogue represents a critical, proactive effort by government to engage interested stakeholders and serves as a model for government organizations seeking to be more transparent, participatory and collaborative.
