The ONC is in the process of shaping the governance structure needed to establish the nationwide health information network, or NHIN, and is seeking comments from the public. This governance structure is necessary to establish a common set of rules for privacy, security, business and technical requirements for nationwide health information exchange.

In anticipation of developing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish this governance mechanism, the ONC has released a request for information, seeking broad input on a range of topics.

The ONC’s proposed governance structure for the nationwide health information network includes establishing a set of “conditions for trusted exchange (CTEs)” and a voluntary validation process for entities to prove they have met these conditions.

The RFI has not been officially published in the Federal Register yet — the target date is May 15, and comments will close 30 days after that — but the “pre-publication” can be downloaded now.
