S & I Framework
Both CDC and ONC participate in the Standards and Interoperability Public Health Reporting Initiative. Goals of this initiative are:
- Address the challenge of electronic data exchange between (a) between clinical care providers and public health, and (b) among public health agencies,
- Support harmonization of Public Health Reporting, Laboratory Results Interface (LRI) and the Transitions of Care (TOC) Initiatives under the ONC S&I Framework and
- Create a roadmap for harmonization of HIT standards between clinical care and population health systems beyond the Meaningful Use Stage 1 objectives.
