Our Purpose

  • In order to meet the needs of the S&I Framework Use Cases and increased use of HIT, there will be a need to modify or extend the existing standards or develop new standards. The S&I Framework will work with standards development organizations and with research organizations to extend existing standards, or develop new ones as necessary, through the Standards Development Support function.
  • The Standards Development Support approach engages standards organizations throughout, integrates with the existing S&I Framework phases, and follows an open and iterative plan for defining the required standard modifications.
  • Standards Development Support works to convene with the Standards Development Organizations (SDOs), Standards Settings Organizations (SSOs), and other associated standards organizations, in identification, analysis, and, as necessary, modification of existing standards to support the Use Cases and core functional Requirements defined by the community for each S&I Framework Initiative.
  • The team includes representatives with organizations such as; AHIMA, Mayo Clinic, Intermountain Healthcare, and Kaiser Permanente.

Teaming Concept Diagram

  • The diagram below depicts the inter-relationships of the S&I Framework functions, from a teaming perspective. The Standards Development Support output is developed based on the results of harmonization of standards across all steps in the S&I Framework, in parallel with the development of the implementation specifications.

Engagement of Domain Owners

  • The Standards Development Support team engages the relevant domain owners for a given applicable standard update--which may come out of any phase of the S&I Framework--even as the initiatives progress "downstream."
