The New York-basedHealthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) has begun work to identify global standards to support a core set of research data that can readily be exchanged between EHRs and clinical research systems.

As administrator of HITSP, the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI, Washington) has named 35 organizations in the clinical research community that have contributed financial support, including the Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth System, University Hospitals, Duke University, and Partners HealthCare.

Six U.S. federal agencies have also demonstrated support, including the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Cancer Institute, the National Center for Research Resources, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Assistant Secretary of Planning and Evaluation, Department of Health and Human Services.

HITSP is a cooperative partnership between the public and private sectors that works to ensure the interoperability of EHRs in the United States. Its goal is to produce an electronic standards implementation guide that outlines the standards, how they support clinical research, and how they fit with existing HITSP guidelines being used within the clinical care environment.
