Welcome to the S&I Framework

The Standards and Interoperability (S&I) Framework empowers healthcare stakeholders to establish standards, specifications and other implementation guidance that facilitate effective healthcare information exchange. The S&I Framework creates a forum – enabled by integrated functions, processes, and tools – where healthcare stakeholders can focus on solving real-world interoperability challenges.

What Is S&I Framework?   How Do I Get Involved?   What Have We Accomplished?   How Do I Implement?

The S&I Framework is one approach adopted by ONC's Office of Standards & Interoperability to fulfill its charge of enabling harmonized interoperability specifications to support national health outcomes and healthcare priorities, including Meaningful Use and the ongoing efforts to create better care, better population health and cost reduction through delvery improvements. The S&I Framework creates a forum – enabled by integrated functions, processes, and tools – where healthcare stakeholders can focus on solving real-world interoperability challenges.

The S&I Framework was established in order to enable healthcare stakeholders to drive higher interoperability and greater health information exchange to improve quality of care. The community of participants has created valuable work products and launched further initiatives that are advancing interoperability across the healthcare industry. Get caught up on our latest implementation guidance and other tools and services. Learn More

 

Using the Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN) 1.0 Portfolio, you can implement solutions that meet Meaningful Use objectives and other national healthcare priorities. The NwHIN 1.0 Portfolio is a collection of standards, services, and policies that form the foundation for meaningful electronic exchange of health information. This portfolio represents a hybrid of existing industry best-practices partnered with new artifacts developed by the S&I Framework community, which is fostered by ONC's Office of Standards and Interoperability (OSI).
