We recognize that trying to influence the direction of health IT development on our own would be a difficult – if near impossible – process. We also recognize that such an effort requires broad community support.
We have launched an educational awareness program, The CURE Project. We want to transfer our research results and The CURE Project name and web site to a healthcare community-based organization that already has – or can acquire – the resources required to enable the healthcare community to have more control over the its requirements for health IT systems.
We have formed an advisory board to guide our efforts to contribute our approach and framework to such an appropriate non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization. We believe that organization could use our framework and approach as the basis for improving the quality, usefulness and usability of our nation’s health IT infrastructure and systems.
Once we have found the right organization, we're prepared to license the results of our research, including the approach and framework that we subsequently improved, for the nominal sum of $1 per year.
We welcome the participation of others who would also like to contribute their intellectual capital and experience to this important effort.
