hData plugging along

Our effort to improve electronic health data exchange is starting to pick up some steam: After a very successful rounds of discussions at the HL7 General Plenary in Atlanta in late September (kudos to Andy Gregorowicz for covering this one) and a pretty warm reception, I presented last week at the NIH in Bethesda during the Tao of Attributes workshop on hData and our plans for the identity management and access control piece. I got some really great feedback, and I am hopeful that the idea of using a set of technologies that is know to scale (RESTful architecture style) can address the needs of a complex health data exchange.

Going forward, we would really like to start building a community around hData and L32. To this effect, we have created a couple of email aliases (see here for details) for starting a dialogue.
