1 1 Healthcare Informatics Landscapes, Roadmaps, and Blueprints: Towards a Business Case Strategy for Large Scale Ontology Projects Intergovernmental Health IT Coordination Intergovernmental Health IT Coordination Marc Wine Program Analyst GSA Office of Intergovernmental Solutions

2 2 Bio-Background Marc Wine has served for 30 years in health care planning, policy and information technology, focusing on improving the nations health care delivery for consumers and providers. Currently, Marc works on Health IT coordination involving Federal, State, local and International governments with the GSA Office of Intergovernmental Solutions in Washington, D.C. Other Key positions Marc has held: Health Systems Planner, Health Planning Council of Greater Boston Health Systems Planner, Health Planning Council of Greater Boston Health Care Management Consultant, Boston University Center for Health Planning Health Care Management Consultant, Boston University Center for Health Planning Health Policy Analyst, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Health Planning Health Policy Analyst, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Health Planning Project Leader, U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA), Office of Facilities Planning Project Leader, U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA), Office of Facilities Planning Implementation Manager, Veterans Health Administration (VHA), CIO Office Implementation Manager, Veterans Health Administration (VHA), CIO Office Program Manager, VHA Health IT Sharing Program Program Manager, VHA Health IT Sharing Program

3 3 Background, Cont. Health IT Sharing (HITS) Key Related Topics: Electronic Health Records (EHRs); Health IT Project Collaboration; Open Source Software (OSS) The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) HITS Program establishes cutting-edge arrangements for leveraging VAs VistA Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) to develop projects in collaboration with Federal health providers, State health care agencies, private sector providers and International health care agencies. These health IT sharing projects support VAs HealthePeople Program, that supports veterans health care delivery and helps provide leadership in health IT for developing a nationwide health information network. Currently, VHA and DHHS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) are collaborating to provide VistA – Office EHR, public domain EHR software to be made available at low cost to private physician practices nationwide.

4 4 Background, Cont. Intergovernmental Health IT Coordination Key Related Topics: Interoperability Standards and Tools; Infrastructure and Health IT Architecture; Innovations in Health IT; Public-Private Partnerships for Health IT Projects The GSA Office of Intergovernmental Solutions (OIS) is identifying cross-cutting health IT activities with Federal, State, local and International governments, in order to support key initiatives that are priority to the development of consumer-centric health care management. The strategy of the OIS is to provide leadership in coordinating health IT that supports the goals for a nationwide health information network, and making an electronic health record (EHR) available for every citizen within the decade.

5 5 Some Strategic Directions for Ontology Health IT Projects The Business Value for Health IT Ontology Tools in Health Data and Information Systems: Promotes data quality in the electronic exchange of health information. Promotes data quality in the electronic exchange of health information. Supports patient safety and goals to reduce medical errors in health care delivery. Supports patient safety and goals to reduce medical errors in health care delivery. Facilitates development of open-standards, interoperable networks of health information systems and EHRs. Facilitates development of open-standards, interoperable networks of health information systems and EHRs.

6 6 Some Strategic Directions for Ontology Health IT Projects, Cont. Viewpoints and Strategic Assumptions The use of ontology tools in health IT applications should be demonstrated early to optimize success with standards for interoperability. The use of ontology tools in health IT applications should be demonstrated early to optimize success with standards for interoperability. Both major health IT projects and minor health IT applications or protocols are essential test components for harmonizing ontology tools. Both major health IT projects and minor health IT applications or protocols are essential test components for harmonizing ontology tools. Awareness of the relationship between the use of ontology software tools in health IT and other Lines of Business (LOB), is important to the overall U.S. economy.
