The awaited NHIN Summary report from Dr. Brailer’s
office is now available. The process of summarizing 512 separate reports
consumed extensive resources, and I am sure that your efforts in developing the
Ontolog response is appreciated.
The full report is available at http://www.hhs.gov/healthit/rfisummaryreport.pdf
A press release is also available at http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2005pres/20050603.html
Sections 7 and 8 seem most appropriate to the discussions we
expect to have in the near future on potential Pilot Projects to extend
specific NHIN Interoperability concepts with formal Ontologies.
Thanks again for your Ontolog support,
Health Ontolog Project coordinator
