Some questions for Todd:

<ul>
<li>How could the basic concept of the SMART challenge be extended beyond the EHR? More mobile. Some 80% of physicians now see smart phones as invaluable to their practice. Why integrate into the monolithic structure (EHR), why not promote out the EHR into a more customizable, modular and mobile structure?</li>
<li>How or will SMART challenge be extended? HHS is doing a great job of reducing barriers to data access in the public sectory, what can we do to reduce barriers to data access in health care in the private sector. Seems that data is a currency, and most stakeholders don't enjoy sharing their currency.</li>
<li>What would you like to see someone develop in the SMART challenge?</li>
<li>What are the big opportunities? What is the biggest success?</li>
</ul>

Peter,

Thanks for the response and the links. I really like the things happening in Brazil and I travel there regularly. I agree that an active open source community would resolve many of these problems, and the community needs access to data on which to build and access to the point of care to deliver. Now that data and access may be opening up, I hope that we'll see the community follow. At the Clinical Groupware Collaborative (www.clinicalgroupwarecollaborative.org) , we have several initiatives ongoing that may improve the development of robust open source communities around more open platforms for health IT. Would welcome the opportunity to exchange ideas moving these communities forward.
