• NITRD Coordination Areas

    The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.

Responses to NITRD Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group (HITRD IWG) Request for Information on Action on Interoperability of Medical Devices, Data, and Platforms to Enhance Patient Care

On February 15, 2019, the National Science Foundation (NSF) on behalf of the National Coordination Office (NCO) for the Networking and Information Technology R&D (NITRD) published a Request for Information (RFI) in the Federal Register [84 FR 4544] inviting opinions and input from the public on new approaches from industry, academia, and non-governmental or organizations to solve the interoperability issues between medical devices, data, and platforms. The RFI provided an opportunity for comments to be made in response to four questions. Comments were accepted until March 15, 219. NITRD received a total of 37 responses from industry, academia, private sector, and public citizens, which are posted below. The posted version of the documents may have contained content, such as personally identifiable information, which were redacted (deleted or obscured) from the original before posting.
