American Health Information Community Successor: The American Health Information Community (AHIC) is a federal advisory body chartered in 2005 to make recommendations to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on how to accelerate the development and adoption of health information technology. The advisory nature of AHIC and its Workgroups has been invaluable in creating a forum to seek input and guidance to understand key issues and policy implications necessary to achieve President Bush's goal for most Americans to have access to secure electronic health records by 2014. The AHIC charter provides that the AHIC will develop and advance recommendations to the Secretary on a private-sector health information community initiative that will succeed the AHIC. The AHIC successor will be an independent and sustainable public-private partnership that brings together the best attributes and resources of public and private entities. This new public-private partnership will develop a unified approach to realize an effective, interoperable nationwide health information system that improves the quality, safety, and efficiency of health care in the U.S. This is a complex undertaking, requiring exceptional leadership and a broad support base.HHS plans to award a Cooperative Agreement in Fall 2007 between HHS and an entity that will collaboratively design and establish the AHIC successor. The primary function of the cooperative agreement is twofold: 1) to facilitate collaboration among public and private representatives to design and establish a new entity focused on nationwide health IT interoperability; and 2) to operate the AHIC successor consistent with the design and bylaws for an initial period of operation that will result in a stable, self-sustaining organization.The grantee will have the primary responsibility to convene a planning board, design, and establish the AHIC successor governance, business and operating models, and elicit members such that the resulting organization is a balanced, effective, public-private collaboration of organizations and individuals in all sectors of the health community. The successor will be designed and ready for initial operation by Spring 2008, with full transition from the AHIC to the successor to be completed by Fall 2008. This transition period will ensure that the work of the AHIC can be sustained and enhanced, without loss of momentum.
