• Promising potential in federated/distributed approaches that allow data to remain local while still enabling querying and pooling of summary data across systems.
  • Ongoing innovation in search technologies with the potential to accelerate use of available data from multiple sources for new insights.
  • Meaningful use criteria and health reform provisions that provide starting points and incentives for the development of a learning system for quality improvement and population health, while underscoring the need to be strategic on issues and opportunities, while maintaining flexibility to accommodate breakthrough capacities.
  • Need for careful attention to limiting the burden for health data collection to the issues most important to patient care and knowledge generation.
  • Requirement for governance policies that foster the data utility for the common good, cultivate the trust fabric with the public and between data sharing entities, and accelerate collaborative progress.
  • Availability of standards for aggregation of large pools of data for purposes such as CER, biomarker validation, disease modeling, and improving research processes.
