Washington, D.C. - The federal government is seeking proposals to conduct trial implementations of the national health information network (NHIN).The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology in the Department of Health and Human Services has published a request for proposals for health data exchanges of various types. The exchanges will cooperate to ensure they can implement an interoperable “network of networks” over the Internet.

The RFP follows work in the past year on prototype NHIN architectures by four federally contracted consortia. Work under the new RFP is part of a new phase of NHIN development that will last at least one year with two option years. The RFP is available at fedbizopps.gov.

The national coordinator’s office also has released the summary report of the NHIN prototype architectures, available at hhs.gov/healthit.
