Collaborative Expedition Workshop #50, Tuesday, April 18, 2006 at NSF    (32LL)

Open Collaboration: Networking Health Information Technology    (32LM)

Printable Version    (3440)


Purpose / Description    (32LP)

Participants will explore opportunities for multi-disciplinary and community-based collaboration around national challenges. By drawing on strategic leadership and "best practices" underway in the health arena, participants will learn how to conduct open collaboration in their own settings. Presentations will illustrate exemplary collaboration that is transforming healthcare services delivery today. Growing Communities of Practice will benefit from knowledge-sharing including:    (33PG)

  1. open standards development    (33PH)
  2. web-based collaboration environments    (33O1)
  3. ontologies for efficient information-sharing and    (33O2)
  4. Federal Enterprise Architecture Data Reference Model V2.0    (32LQ)

In Light of this Purpose, How are We Building Collaboration Readiness and Discernment? Key Workshop Questions:    (32LR)

  1. How can multiple communities from diverse sectors work together using relevant scenarios to build stewardship practices that support readiness and realization of shared missions?    (32LS)
  2. How is the emerging maturity of notation systems generally, including the DRM abstract model, enabling multiple notation (modeling) systems to reinforce and map to one another, while contributing to current demands for real-time readiness and visibility of the "whole picture"?    (32LT)
  3. How can the capacities of trust, agility, and accountability be achieved through federated stewardship among communities still building common ground and understanding?    (32LU)
  4. How can Communities of Practice (or Interest) define their identities, roles, and governance relationships in a manner that reinforces their individual and collective capacities?    (32LV)

The President’s Management Agenda (PMA) requires all federal agencies to transform the roles and relationships among people, processes, and technology in order to become a citizen-centered government. The PMA emphasizes bringing value and productivity results to citizens, businesses, and public managers. The Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) is emerging as an important collaborative organizing process to promote the delivery of effective, efficient services. FEA Reference Models serve as catalysts for foresight and discernment around improved mission and business performance, including data and information-sharing. The Data Reference Model, in particular, will provide a concrete means for improving the capacity for mission-related sharing, while also increasing the downstream value of strategic information assets.    (32LW)
