Health Information Technology (IT) Toolkit: A Compendium of Accessible & Usable Health IT Resources

To increase the reach of health IT to all Americans, including those with disabilities and older adults, health IT must be accessible and usable for consumers and providers. Having accurate and accessible information is pivotal in supporting health IT in the health care ecosystem. The purpose of this toolkit is to highlight resources, research, and best practices across federal agencies, federal grantees, and non-federal entities related to ensuring and encouraging that health IT is accessible and usable. This toolkit is designed to be a compendium of resources to help further research and development of health IT that is accessible and usable. It is meant to help facilitate future research and collaboration by federal agencies and departments and presents recommendations related to accessible and usable health IT.
