Initiative Overview

This section contains links to materials describing the Health eDecisions initiative, including the scope statement, challenges and risks, value statement, stakeholders, relevant standards, timelines and deliverables.

Initiative Phases

The links below contain information and materials supportingHarmonization and Standards - Implementation the phases through which the HeD initiative moved, including pre-discovery, discovery, implementation, pilots and evaluation.
  • Initiative Process Overview Each of the S&I Initiatives follows a phased approach to achieve the key outcomes outlined for the Initiative. The phasing approach provides the ability to fail-fast, re-prioritize initiatives, and better understand the interoperability challenge.
  • Charter - Pre-Discovery Phase The purpose of the Pre-discovery phase is to create the Initiative Charter for review and approval by the S&I Steering Team. The Pre-Discovery phase is executed before the Call for Participation is provided to the broader Community of Interest.
  • Use Cases - Discovery Phase The purpose of the Discovery phase is to identify the use cases and user stories for the Initiative. Interoperability gaps, costs and barriers are identified and defined to further refine the Initiative. Feasibility tests and prototypes are done using relevant models and standards to determine potential approaches to solve the challenges outlined. The information accumulated and the lessons learned through the Discovery phase will jump-start the next phase and also provide the necessary details to determine if the Initiative needs to continue.
  • Harmonization and Standards - Implementation The purpose of the Implementation phase is to define the set of Harmonized Specifications and documentation required to solve the challenge, create the necessary reference implementation using the specifications and plan for operational pilot testing if goals and objectives are still justified.
  • Pilots The purpose of the Pilot phase is to implement the technology in real-world situations and aid in learning the policies that will be required for an operational system, identify barriers for implementation, and revise reference implementations and harmonized specifications based on real-world lessons learned. Finally the implementations will be transitioned to open source communities for long term sustainment.
  • Evaluation The purpose of the Evaluation phase is to measure the Initiative against the Key Outcomes outlined in the Initiative Charter, and determine if there is benefit in wide scale deployment and adoption. The Initiative will provide a recommendation of the various policy tools that the ONC can use to facilitate wide-scale deployment and adoption of the solutions.
