2010).
Rationale 2: While HIPAA and HITECH have designated some technical standards as mandatory, those standards
are insufficient to enable collection, management, and exchange of the mandated data. Technical standards are
needed to assure that structured and codified terminologies, sufficiently comprehensive to capture all of health
care, are widely available, that data can be securely and easily exchanged within and across organizations, and
that a valid, safe, and reliable patient-centered community-care record can be created and maintained (Arlotto,
2010).

are insufficient to enable collection, management, and exchange of the mandated data. Technical standards are
needed to assure that structured and codified terminologies, sufficiently comprehensive to capture all of health
care, are widely available, that data can be securely and easily exchanged within and across organizations, and
that a valid, safe, and reliable patient-centered community-care record can be created and maintained (Arlotto,
2010).
Rationale 4: The availability of working technical standards is another challenge. While HIPAA and HITECH
have designated some technical standards as mandatory, those standards are insufficient to enable collection,
management, and exchange of the mandated data. Technical standards are needed to assure that structured and
codified terminologies, sufficiently comprehensive to capture all of health care, are widely available, that data can
