The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT will release voluntary guidelines for health information exchange during the first half of 2013. Rather than a formal rule, the guidelines will allow for feedback and sharing of best practices among the health care community. The ONC will update guidelines periodically in an effort to "get something out to reduce uncertainty and let people know what we're thinking," according to ONC policy analyst Steve Posnack.
