Nationwide Health Information Network Five Critical Components Necessary For Nationwide Interoperable Health Information
The complexity of modern medicine exceeds the inherent limitations of the unaided human mind. David M. Eddy (1990) Source: CBO Evidence on the Costs and Benefits of Health Information Technology May % 14% Percent of Physicians

Full-Function EHRs - The Ultimate Objective EHRs used interactively at the point of care delivery interoperable with all relevant data sources complimenting the caregiver with a body of knowledge and clinical tools accessible by patients and other providers Enabling the practice of Evidence Based Medicine and Quality Measures
Managing Patient Behavior & Care Delivery Reducing the variation of treatment thru alerts and reminders at the point of care (45% of care is either under or over utilized) Providing Quality measures and reporting against evidence based medicine (EBM) standards Managing and influencing patient behavior by increased communications with caregivers and patient health information
Sustainability Model Create a Sustainable Business Model that funds the initial investment and ongoing support of this future state vision with all stakeholders contributing their pro-rata share based upon the accrual of benefits.
Administration and Operations Determine the appropriate neutral entity to serve as the focal point for collaboration representing all stakeholders. This will be the actual provider of shared services to support the governance and operations of the HIE.
Technology Architecture Identify the appropriate Technology Architecture consistent with standards outlined by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) and as a component of a state-level HIE, including: Certification Privacy & Security Interoperability Governance
Project Work Plan and Budget Produce a Project Work Plan and Budget that plans a program for the mass deployment of EHRs and an HIE. This will take advantage of economies of scale and shared services to most efficiently and effectively transform healthcare in Southern Illinois.
Stakeholders Connect SI will coordinate and facilitate HIE planning with a Consortium that represents a minimum of 50% of the covered lives, 75% of medical transactions, 50% of Stakeholder groups including FQHCs & Public Health Departments in our MTA.
