Information Systems Advisory Committee (ISAC)
The Information Systems Advisory Committee (ISAC) is established to guide the development of a co-owned and co-managed Indian health information infrastructure and information systems. The goal of the ISAC is to assure the creation of flexible and dynamic information systems that assist in the management and delivery of health care and contribute to the elevation of the health status of Indian people. The ISAC will assist in insuring that information systems are available, accessible, useful, cost effective, and user friendly for local level providers, while continuing to create standardized aggregate data that supports advocacy for Indian health programs at the national level.
