ONC has published a Governance Framework [PDF - 393 KB] which is intended to provide a common foundation for all types of governance models and entities that set HIE policy. The framework’s business principles address the need for successful cooperation among all parties as well as the need to mitigate behaviors that could result in proprietary networks and resistance to exchanging information even when it could enhance patient care. ONC believes there must be transparency of costs order to evolve the market in an efficient way.
How can ONC encourage transparency with respect to the costs of exchange?
