    As a key element of the national health information technology strategy,
    the advancement of the Nationwide Health Information Network initiative
    will provide the foundation for interoperable, secure and
    standards-based health information exchange nationally.
    The Third Nationwide Health Information Network forum will showcase the
    work of the four NHIN Consortia by providing an opportunity to see
    actual demonstrations of health information exchange prototypes. The
    forum will also include presentations and discussion on different
    approaches to business models that target establishing self sustaining
    health information service providers and exchange. The forum will
    include plenary presentations, demonstrations sessions and panel
    presentations with discussion.

    The Third Nationwide Health Information Network forum will be open to
    the public and include participants in key processes supported by the
    Office for the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology
    (including the four consortia developing prototype Nationwide Health
    Information Network architectures, key representatives from other
    public, private, and non-profit health information technology
    stakeholders.)
