I am happy to help software development on this challenging project. my email id : dbakumar@gmail.com

I would like to just note that this project subject has major dependence upon work with ADA SCDI and ASTM E-31.25 on the Structure and Content of the EHR. Clinical data Integration is critically dependent upon a "Common EHR Model" for both data tructure and data representation. The international steps with respedct to SNOMED-CT and ADA's efforts to revive the SNODENT subset of SNOMED vocabularies needs to be tapped by this project while coordinating the model with the HITSP TCs. Concurrently, this project also must work with HITSP ECO to tell the story of the history of this effort , as documented by the 1993 Book on the EOHR presnted by the link on the Learning Resources Page of DIOC. This step is needed in order to get the cross-disciplinary dialog on the common concepts and their inclusion on the common vocabularies that are now being included and cross-maped in SNOMED-CT. The understndaing of these threads will be needed in order to get systematic joint work by industry Suppliers of EOHR systems to the oral health community. How the industry implementation of the HITSP standards and other evolving EHR common conventions that will be part of "Clinical Data Integration" needs to be part of this story as the incetnive of "clear targets" for all participants.

I encourage Val Powell to work closely with Titus Schleyer in dialog with Oral Health America in using the 1993 book to tell the overview general story in active collaboration of DIOC with HITSP ECO in agressive informtion outreach to the the Healthcare community. This will make much more useful the technical; parts of the story, such as the role of the HITSP constructs in the implemented architecture that would be part of the NHIN aspects. This broader effort could thus be coordinated with the various SDOs, such as ADA-SCDI, ASTM and HL7.
