9 U.S. Natural Gas Exports Natural gas can be transported either by pipeline as a gas or in liquid form on an LNG tanker. The U.S. was the worlds largest natural gas producer in As a result of the increase in natural gas production form shale, the U.S. has become a low cost natural gas producer. The EIA estimates that the U.S. will produce 39% of its natural gas from shale by

10 NEI Priority Sector The sector has significant growth potential in foreign markets, and U.S. equipment and service companies are uniquely positioned in the global marketplace in all segments of the oil & gas sector. Strategic Priorities: – Lead interagency efforts to promote trade in the oil & gas sector and remove market access barriers – Strengthen USG coordination with U.S. oil & gas companies – Create new markets for U.S. oil & gas companies – Enhance trade promotion efforts to better link buyers and sellers of U.S. equipment and services to existing markets 10

14 Summary of Health IT Sector Sector sometimes referred to as e-Health (particularly in Europe) Health IT represents an intersection of multiple issue areas: Information technology/cloud computing Privacy/security of health information Standards development Medical Device/software interoperability Diagnostic safety/accuracy Cross border data flows Workforce/skills development 2

15 Health IT Subsectors Electronic Health Records Remote monitoring/telemedicine Software Health Information Networks mHealth/Mobile Health Education 3

16 Evolution of U.S. Health IT Sector Electronic health records for all Americans within ten years first announced in 2004 executive order by President Bush President Obama reaffirmed goal that all Americans should have electronic health records by HITECH accelerated domestic interest in sector (authorized roughly $23 billion in Meaningful Use incentive payments, created Office of National Coordinator (ONC) within Department of Health & Human Services (HHS)) Other federal agencies have an interest in sector (including NIST, Dept. of Defense, Veterans Administration, other HHS agencies, FCC, White House) The sector had limited export experience, which provided an opportunity for Commerce to become involved 4

17 National Export InitiativeITA Health IT Activities 2010Formation of ITA cross-office Health IT Team and development of strategic plan, activities and outreach ITA as industry organizer/convener regarding trade-related issues Reasons Health IT is an export sector with great opportunity Many countries investing more in healthcare, but looking to deliver more efficient/effective health solutions Health challenges exist both among young (maternal/child health) and aging populations (mobility issues) Opportunity to closely and effectively monitor chronic/non-communicable diseases Opportunity to take advantage of leapfrog technologies (such as ubiquity of mobile phones) Redesign of healthcare systemmore remote care monitoring, emphasis on value and patient-centered care 5

18 Engagement with Industry Assisting large (Oracle, Intel) and SME (e.g., Get Real Health, Dimensional Insight) companies Linkages with trade associations: – Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) – American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) (including then-A/S Lamb-Hale speech and industry roundtable in October 2012) – Continua Health Alliance 6

19 Industry Interest in Exporting mHealth Technologies? mHealth subsector has prominent domestic focus at present: Tremendous size and market opportunities in U.S. Familiarity and relative safety in domestic market Available funding opportunities through legislative incentives Lack of familiarity with the rules of the game in foreign markets 7

21 Opportunities U.S. companies have recently won foreign government tenders for implementing electronic health records systems. Reports and surveys identify Health IT as an industry with impressive domestic job prospects. U.S. academic institutions and trade associations have developed programs to train the Health IT workforce; many of these programs can be exported worldwide. The recently issued EU-U.S. eHealth/Health IT Roadmap provides opportunities to create policy dialogues to discuss issues of mutual interest, which may also have possible applicability to third countries. ITA/HIMSS Memorandum of Understanding (signed in February 2013) offered HIMSS members and staff access to products and services across ITA; webinars, posting of U.S. Export Assistance Centers are two areas of collaboration to date. The World Bank estimates the global Health IT sector will grow to $250 billion by

22 Risks and Issues Countries are developing regulations and standards either in the absence, or lacking awareness, of international best practices. Government Health IT tenders and contracts may be awarded to companies aggressively supported by foreign governments. Transparency process can also be an issue. Privacy and Security of health information may be an important barrier, one which may not necessarily be under the purview of the Health Ministry. Placing restrictions on cross-border data flows and data storage (both information movement and information location) may also inhibit growth of the Health IT sector. Oversight of the Health IT sector overseas is often divided among multiple ministries, possibly creating gaps in policy coordination. 11
