Greetings to the Direct Project Participants,
An S and I Initiative focuses on a single challenge with a set of value-creating goals and outcomes that will enhance efficiency, quality and effectiveness of the delivery of healthcare, through the development of content, technical specifications and reusable tools and services. The S and I Framework is currently launching three Initiatives:
The S and I Framework works with a set of motivated organizations and individuals who share the mission and goals of care delivery transformation through improved interoperability. The overall success of the S and I Framework is dependent upon volunteer experts from the healthcare industry and we welcome and encourage new volunteers to contribute to this evolving process. Participant collaboration and deliverable management will be organized through the use of the S and I Framework Wiki (http://wiki.siframework.org/).
Any interested party is invited to get involved in S and I Framework Initiatives, participate in discussions and provide comments and feedback by joining the Wiki. However, only Committed Members have voting rights in the S and I consensus process. A Statement of Commitment is required to be a formal Committed Member of the S and I Framework. Participating organizations and individuals must (1) regularly attend weekly Initiative Group meetings, and (2) meaningfully participate in developing needed deliverables, including development of source code, documentation development, and supporting implementation of the S and I Framework pilot efforts.
