Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap [open pdf - 4MB]
"Th[is] Roadmap is intended for health IT stakeholders who will build the infrastructure necessary for interoperability and for those who will use that infrastructure. This iteration of the Roadmap focuses primarily on actions that will enable a majority of individuals and providers across the care continuum to send, receive, find and use priority data domains at the nationwide level by the end of 2017 (see figure 7 in H. Consistent Data Semantics). Although the near-term target focuses on individuals and care providers, it is important to ensure the priority data domains are standardized to support community-based services, human services, public health and the research community. Also in-scope for the Roadmap is the ability to use data to support better stratification across populations of aggregated electronic health information to identify and address health disparities, support research and evidence-based precision medicine."
