White House launches digital, mobile strategy for all federal agencies

The White House has released a memorandum and published a policy paper outlining the Obama ad-ministration’s plans to promote broader digital access to government information, including health care data.
The new digital strategy — titled, “Digital Government: Building a 21st Century Platform to Better Ser-vice the American People” — calls for federal agencies to provide data in new ways that “fully utilize” Web and mobile technologies. For example, the strategy calls for enhancing the federal Data.gov web-site so it can pull data from federal agencies in real time.
The strategy’s four key principles are:
    Moving from managing documents to managing discrete pieces of data that can be shared, se-cured and presented in a useful way;
    Working across and within agencies to cut costs, streamline development and apply consistent standards for creating and delivering data;
    Creating, managing and presenting data so the public can use it in various ways; and
    Ensuring the privacy and security of digital services and data delivery
As part of the digital strategy, Obama called for all federal agencies to make at least two key govern-ment services available through mobile applications within one year.
