Outline for Deliverables & Deadlines     (1G)

  • Strawman version 1 Bob Smith     (1G1)
    • The RFI states 4 goals, key missing elements to bridge current practice to a ten year vision, and poses a Decision Scenario including:     (1G1A)
      • The NHIN could be developed and operated in many ways.     (1G1A1)
        • It could include state-of-the-art web technologies or more traditional clearinghouse architectures.     (1G1A1A)
        • It could be highly decentralized or somewhat centrally brokered.     (1G1A1B)
        • It could be a nationwide service, a collection of regional services or a set of tools that share common components.     (1G1A1C)
        • It could be overseen by public organizations, by private organizations, or by public-private consortia.     (1G1A1D)
      • Regardless of how it is developed, overseen or operated, there is a compelling public interest for a NHIN to exist.     (1G1A2)

Action Plan and Chronology     (1G7)

  • Bob Smith Sunday 1-16-05: Note that many of the 24 RFI questions are now "answered" by ONCHIT Staff in their five presentations to key stakeholders "Suggestive Answers?"     (1G7B)
    • Extensions of the earlier "Framework" of 4 goals and strategies to achieving these defined goals     (1G7B1)
