1 GSA Office of Intergovernmental Solutions Fostering a Collaborative Environment with Federal, State, Local and International Governments The Health IT Ontology Project Presentation: To the National Center for Ontological Research Committee on Ontology for Health Informatics Marc Wine GSA OIS January 27, 2006

2 Mission Statement GSA Office of Intergovernmental Solutions (OIS) The mission of the OIS involves supporting improvement of the delivery of government services to citizens among federal, state, local and foreign governments and intergovernmental organizations. The mission of the OIS involves supporting improvement of the delivery of government services to citizens among federal, state, local and foreign governments and intergovernmental organizations.

3 The Mission of OIS Includes Three Cross-cutting Objectives: 1. Facilitating knowledge-sharing of business practices of critical importance to the governments priorities. 2. Expanding the intergovernmental community to broaden the scope of collaboration among the public and private intergovernmental agencies and organizations. 3. Supporting Communities of Practice, which are aligned with effectively accomplishing the goals of the Presidents Management Agenda. – The Health IT Ontology Project (HITOP) Federal Work Group One initiative involves working with federal health IT leaders to examine the possibilities for employing Semantic Web, ontology type software solutions to support high-priority health IT applications – The Health IT Ontology Project (HITOP) Federal Work Group

4 Health Ontology Project (HITOP) Federal Work Group The Purposes of the HITOP Work Group are to: Survey existing best practices and actions in the semantic interoperability and ontology communities of practice. Identify leading–edge innovations in the use of ontology software tools for health IT applications. Support the advancement of interoperability and standards in the context of Federal Enterprise.

6 Ontology Actions Supporting Health IT Project Development Reported to HITOP The Ontology and Taxonomy Coordinating Work Group (ONTCWG) – provides a forum for voluntary coordination of all activities within the Federal government and other interested parties, in developing: Knowledge Classification and Representation systems such as: ontology, ontology, taxonomies, taxonomies, Thesauri, and Thesauri, and graphical knowledge representations. graphical knowledge representations.

11 Introducing the Data Reference Model 2.0 (DRM) of the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) The DRM 2.0 is one of five reference models of the FEA that has recently been approved and is being implemented by OMB. The DRM 2.0 is one of five reference models of the FEA that has recently been approved and is being implemented by OMB. The FEA Data Reference Model (DRM) is intended to promote the common identification, use, and appropriate sharing of data and information across the federal government through its standardization of data.

14 Office of Intergovernmental Solutions – Comments on the FHA Version 0.6 Comments Submitted to FHA Partners Council January 20, 2006: 1. The FHA Version 0.6 should be developed further to include specificity about how the DRM 2.0 will be applied in the design and maintenance of data definitions and standards. Rationale and Benefit to FHA Version 0.6: Enhancement of data definitions and relationships among related information systems in other agencies, state and local governments and the private sector.)

The FHA PMO should consider early testing of the application of DRM 2.0 concepts. Rationale and Benefit to FHA Version 0.6: Demonstrating Semantic Web solutions that can enable more consumer-centric data and information usage across disparate networks and within legacy systems/applications.
