An HIT Framework for ACOs: where is the IT?

A few weeks ago, CCHIT released it’s HIT Framework for Accountable Care.  The 42-page document is “designed as a starting point for provider groups developing HIT roadmaps, for payers looking to assess or complement the HIT capabilities of their provider partners and for HIT developers designing products to fill gaps in currently available technology.”  But there is very little IT in the HIT framework.
