was a Rosie the Riveter in the Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II She and my father were so proud that their daughter graduated from college even though neither of them had college degrees They were able to find a place in the American economy and achieve their American Dream But if they were starting out today would the same be true I have two children who are growing up in this world transformed by technology and globalization It s my deepest hope that they will live in a time of optimism and shared opportunity Read More America s Moment Creating Opportunity in the Connected Age

America and who wrote the book s preface It is unacceptable in our nation for economic well being to be out of reach for so many hard working Americans Everyone must once again feel their efforts can

recognize an individual s abilities and by providing transparent and accessible information on skills required by employers Creating more jobs in America by linking American small businesses and entrepreneurs to the world of buyers for goods and services Creating growth potential for job creating small businesses by expanding access to capital and credit that is currently parked on the sidelines and Enabling many more career paths to well compensated work by using technology to deliver information to workers when they need it The daunting challenges of the new economy demand new ideas new types of leadership and new partnerships both public and private said co author and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom Business education and government leaders can work collaboratively to grow our economy invest in education and create good jobs We have to step up and take responsibility if we want to prepare the workforce of tomorrow America s Moment shows us the steps that America must take to turn today s challenges into opportunities said co author Geoffrey Canada president of the non profit Harlem Children s Zone The digital technology revolution has given us incredible new tools for learning and ways to turn the corner on the financial anxiety and job insecurity that are haunting so many Americans We now have the ability to expand the number of pathways to learning and to rethink how every individual can be ensured of a pathway to opportunity and employment explained ASU President and co author Michael Crow With the technological tools available to us today we can advance flexible and personalized learning systems and generate new market ready credentials based on an individual s demonstrated knowledge America s Moment serves as an important reminder that we are stronger as a nation when everyone gets an equal chance to achieve success said co author Howard Schultz chief executive officer and chairman Starbucks With millions of

    exchange health information while protecting privacy By sharing these materials Connecting for Health hopes this first set of materials will help to reduce the many existing financial legal and technical barriers to achieving secure health information exchange and that it will encourage new entrants into the field Another key benefit of the approach is based on the ability of the Connecting for Health Common Framework to make it possible for any multi regional or non geographic network such as a group of specialty providers that share a network over a widely disbursed area to have a single common way of communicating with any local network The prototype was designed to test the principles of the Connecting for Health Common Framework summarized in the collaborative s Roadmap released in June of 2004 The detailed technical specifications and the policies that dictate the use access privacy and security of information have been developed together through a consensus process over the last year with the Connecting for Health Collaborative s many participants The work is based on common open non proprietary standards and strong model policies to protect privacy and information security The tests showed that local networks and other organizations could communicate with one another using a decentralized model that adheres to the Connecting for Health Common Framework avoiding the need to create a one size fits all network or a national database Mendocino County is a rural community three hours north of San Francisco Our participation in the Connecting for Health prototype is an important part of enhancing the medical care that individuals in our area can receive said Will Ross project manager with Mendocino Health Records Exchange in Ukiah CA We demonstrated that large systems with tremendous information technology resources and rural networks like ours made up of safety net clinics and small practices capable of only modest technology investments can affordably exchange health information over the Internet using tools which conform to the Connecting for Health Common Framework During this first phase of the prototype each site developed a RLS that linked anonymized patient records across the three networks without using a common patient identifier and the regions were then able to exchange information about prescription records and laboratory test results The teams at each site are now preparing to test the secure exchange in live clinical settings Connecting for Health expects to accomplish this exchange by the end of summer 2006 This effort builds on the existing work done to connect Indianapolis area hospitals by the Indiana Health Information Exchange and Regenstrief Institute Connecting with these two other communities demonstrates the tremendous possibilities that can be created by being able to use health information to improve the quality of care said J Marc Overhage MD PhD president and CEO of the Indiana Health Information Exchange Given the current burden of chronic illness and the aging population our patients need us to have access to comprehensive well integrated clinical data and health information exchange is the only way to
