Designing for Quality: eHealth Development Workshop
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)/Advanced Technology Program, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Library of Medicine (NLM), and the Veterans Health Administration (VHA)
NIST, Gaithersburg, MD
June 24-25, 2003

Purpose: To help ehealth developers and researchers build on the recent successes of those who are integrating evidence based health information systems into service delivery systems.

Take A-Ways: Workshop participants will leave with a clear vision of:

  • the role of technologies in health care systems designed for quality;
  • enabling technologies required to implement the vision;
  • promising approaches and developments: and
  • funding opportunities

Rationale: As most of us look around the health care industry, we see increasing costs, unacceptable errors, dissatisfied patients and providers. Several leading health care organizations, including the Institute of Medicine, have recently pointed to evidence based medicine as a way out of the wilderness. In fact, amidst today's health care chaos, there are pockets of success stories in which evidence based ehealth care services are thriving. This workshop is designed to advance the integration of outcomes research, system design and information technology. Toward that end, ehealth developers, researchers and funders will be encouraged to collaborate in advancing the design and implementation of quality ehealth applications, solutions and systems.
