Strategy developed by BIO-EHR Working Group:

  • Conversations – listen for shared vision and the changes needed to achieve it
  • Conference – crystallize initiative and partnerships
  • Report – articulate the vision, synthesize previous efforts; recommend changes needed & roles; address sustainability
  • Implementation – make investments; implement commitments; improve communication; leverage feedback loops

Approved by a joint meeting of the BIO Advisory Committeeand the EHR Advisory Committee in November 2006
