3 US Government's CONNECT Program
- Elliot Sloane

The US Federal Government’s CONNECT Program:

Elliot Sloane presented an introduction to the Federal Government’s CONNECT Program run under the Federal Health Architecture (FHA). The slides were distributed to the committee and are available at ftp://ftp.ihe.net/Patient_Care_Devices/Presentations/CONNECT%20References/
Elliot began with David Riley’s presentation. President Bush signed executive orders, including one that requires federal agencies can only buy healthcare software that is approved by the FHA. A slide shows the many agencies affected. The FHA was developed by these agencies to implement the non-funded requirement. Elliot continued to describe the program which is related to NHIN. The EMR currently in use will be replaced by a commercial system, rumored to be Epic’s.
The program provides an open source software project which includes Social Security, DOD, and other organizations, identified within the slides.
Elliot inserted the Wounded Warrior software slides at this point. The objective is to meet the multiple needs for the various types of care (private, VA, etc.) and support Social Security to reduce the time it takes to clear a disability claim (a year). The slides that were provided include the speaker’s notes.
Elliot then returned to David Riley’s slides. He described how the Exchange Template is being adopted by private and public hospitals as well as CDC to exchange documents. He described slides showing agencies, HIEs and software companies that have included CONNECT software. There are two major components: the Gateway and the Adapter (a program that interfaces the organization’s software with the Gateway). Elliot has discussed developing an Adapter for PCD’s profiles with David Riley.
The VA has a large interest in telehealth and telemedicine and suggested that PCD talk with the VA. Elliot asked for volunteers to begin discussion. Greg, John Garguilo, Paul volunteered to join Elliot in a discussion with Dr. Adam Dwarkin, chief of care coordination. Greg added that : Dr. Dwarkin will be part of a group beginning work in January that will address the medical home, consistency of device data, PCD and Continua. PCD and Continua will be high priority for them in 2011.
Elliot will recommend to Dave Riley that he and his team discuss PCD efforts in advance of HIMSS11. He believes that active involvement of a PCD team can achieve integration of the PCD profiles into the CONNECT program and this should begin with a conference call in the next two to four weeks. The VA’s kick off call will take place in the second part of January and Elliot recommends making the PCD’s interest available before that.
