The Institute of Medicine will recommend in a forthcoming report that a regulatory agency be created to oversee health information technology, according to a story from the not-for-profit Center for Public Integrity’s iWatch News. The IOM’s report is scheduled to be released publicly on Thursday, Nov. 10, but iWatch obtained an advance copy, according to the story.

The report, Health IT and Patient Safety: Building Safer Systems for Better Care, also recommends that the Food and Drug Administration not be given the job of overseeing health IT, according to iWatch.
