date information on this meeting. A notice in the Federal Register 
about last minute modifications that impact a previously announced 
advisory committee meeting cannot always be published quickly enough to 
provide timely notice.
    Agenda: The committee will hear reports from its workgroups and 
updates from ONC and other Federal agencies. ONC intends to make 
background material available to the public no later than two (2) 
business days prior to the meeting. If ONC is unable to post the 
background material on its Web site prior to the meeting, it will be

meeting, and the background material will be posted on ONC's Web site 
after the meeting, at http://healthit.hhs.gov.
