The Illinois Framework is pleased to announce the release of Establishing Governance for Health and Human Services Interoperability Initiatives, a handbook for states and local jurisdictions contemplating interoperability projects. A step-by-step guide for implementing governance in cross-agency settings, the handbook draws from expert interviews, intensive research into best practice, and the experience of the Illinois Framework in developing a governance structure for Illinois’ health and human services agencies.
The handbook includes interactive features such as audio recordings of interviews, links to reports and white papers, and a toolkit of key documents such as charters and memoranda.
Funding for the handbook was provided by the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Partnership Fund Pilot State Systems Interoperability and Integration (S212) Grant Project, a one-year planning grant distributed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
