A Robust Health Data Infrastructure – Prepared for: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality – April 2014

Prepared by: JASON, The MITRE Corporation

Extract:

“The body of this report provides the details of an example software architecture that breaks the stranglehold of current stovepipe systems and facilitates migration to a software ecosystem, with a diversity of products and apps, that fosters innovation and entrepreneurship. JASON believes that now is time to define such an architecture, leveraging the opportunity to specify CMS Stage 3 Meaningful Use requirements to drive implementation. A fundamental precept of medicine is: “Above all, do no harm.” A software architecture that is broadly tolerant of different scales, input types, and sites for data storage and processing offers a sure pathway, and one that will be open to future innovation. Patients and health care providers will be in a position to choose which particular implementations within the architecture have the most utility for their needs.”
