Subject: Sorry I missed yesterday's meeting-Note for October

Hi Brett, Everyone,

I'm sorry I missed yesterday's scheduled meeting. I was actually out 
getting a blood test and discovered that the lab had moved and so it 
took a lot longer than I expected. I've heard there's this new 
fangled device called a telephone you can use to check on such 
things. Imagine! ;-)

Regardless, I saw the HHS release this week of the Strategic HIT Plan 
for 2008-2012 and it includes "Population Health" and I wondered if 
you all had noticed this?

I am in preliminary talks about a Collaborative Expedition Workshop 
at NSF in October covering the domains related to Emergency 
EM Standards;
Health Informatics;
Geospatial Information Systems; and,
Building Information Modeling (BIM).

I am concerned that the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) is 
not mentioned in the HHS HIT Strategic Plan although Senate Bill S. 
3678: Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act signed in December 
2006, is not mentioned.

Responsibility for NDMS was transferred in S3678 to HHS from DHS 
(Homeland Security), though some degree of cooperative effort between 
the two cabinet departments is also mandated.

I'd like to draw attention to this, so as I go about looking for 
experts from the Health community to recommend for this October 
Workshop, I'd like to start a conversation in this group in relation 
to the HIT Strategic Plan, (not just NDMS) which I have attached, 
(both the plan and the summary).
