>OASIS Emergency Management Technical Committee
>Dear Elysa:
>On behalf of the Emergency Interoperability Consortium (EIC) and COMCARE, 
>and with the concurrence of the Department of Homeland Security's Disaster 
>Management Program, I would like to submit the attached HAVE documents for 
>standards review and formalization by the Emergency Management Technical 
>Committee (EM-TC) under the OASIS process. HAVE is a draft XML 
>specification, under the EDXL umbrella, that enables the exchange of 
>information related to medical and health organizations and their 
>resources among other hospitals, state health departments and 
>associations, emergency managers, 9-1-1 centers, and other responsible 
>emergency agencies involved in response and preparedness.
>The EIC submits the HAVE specification to the EM-TC with great enthusiasm. 
>The specification has been developed by an open, inclusive consensus 
>process involving a broad-based group of experts and official 
>representatives of the emergency response domains that produce or desire 
>to use the information it contains.   Then it was successfully put through 
>the EDXL Standards Working Group process, and finally received formal 
>consideration by our members and Board of Directors.
>The HAVE specification was specifically designed by practitioners to be 
>used in everyday circumstances, mass disasters, and preparedness 
>exercises. We believe this specification is unique in that the financial 
>support for its development came from two federal departments: DHS's 
>Disaster Management Program and the Department of Health and Human 
>Services' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).    Additional 
>leadership and support was provided by the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare 
>Association, especially its Hospital Emergency Management Committee.   The 
>contributions of the HAVBed project team, particularly Dr. Steve Cantrill 
>of Denver Medical, need recognition.  Finally, from start to finish the 
>process was expertly led and facilitated by COMCARE, particularly Sukumar 
>Dwarkanath, its Technical Director.
>I would like to ask that the EM-TC review these materials at its earliest 
>convenience to determine whether they fit with the EM-TC Charter, and 
>represent a standards effort on which it is appropriate for the EM-TC to 
>work.  The EIC sincerely appreciates all the hard work the members of the 
>EM-TC put into the review and creation of emergency data standards.   We 
>look forward to continuing to collaborate successfully with you.   Please 
>let me know if you have any questions.
