Abstract It has been just over a year since the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) first published its Open Government Plan. Since its publication, HHS has received a wide range of comments and public input that have helped guide the implementation of the plan. HHS has used a variety of new communication strategies, including social media platforms, to engage, inform, and respond to the public. During this period, HHS has made great progress in advancing transparency, collaboration, and participation at the Department, which in turn has helped us to more effectively and efficiently deliver on our mission of promoting the health and well-being of the American people. This memo highlights some of the most important developments in HHS's Open Government Initiative in four key domain areas: Leadership, Governance and Culture Change at HHS; Transparency and Data Sharing; Participation and Collaboration; and HHS Flagship Initiatives.
