NIC relies on the generous contributions of its members and supporters to grow and sustain its activities. Our primary areas of focus in 2022 and 2023 are to:

  1. Educate about interoperability and data sharing through learning sessions and convenings, innovative product demonstrations, and publications and communications.
  2. Implement demonstration projects to show how to obtain and manage informed consent for multiple programs through an innovative, open-source, standards-based Consent Service Utility.

Donate now to support these efforts! All our activities are built on the contribution of a diverse, national community of subject matter experts from government, industry, academia and nonprofit associations.

Improving informed consent is central to SOC Institute’s work and we’re grateful to ONC for including us in this vital topic – Watch the recordings from the eConsent workshop.


Accelerating Cross-Sector Information Sharing

Project Unify is an advanced, cross-industry and cross-sector development project of Stewards of Change Institute and its National Interoperability Collaborative (NIC).

Modernizing Consent to Advance Health and Equity

Our new report focuses on the nuts and bolts of improving consent, such as legal and technical issues.It also explains our open-source proof-of-concept initiative, the Consent Service Utility (CSU). Most importantly, it gives voice to “people with lived expertise,” those in underserved communities who stand to gain the most from progress.

The Imperative for Modernizing Informed Consent

The processes for obtaining, revoking and managing consent are still highly siloed and often paper-based. SOCI has decided to sharply focus its 2022 activities on bringing them into the 21st Century.
