Resource Center

InterOptimability Resources

Our Resource Center is a virtual library where you can go for a broad range of information relating to interoperability, information-sharing, and the six domains in which NIC primarily works: human and social services, public health, public education, public safety, emergency medical services and health information technology. We have vetted and aggregated numerous studies, guidance documents and other materials, which can be sorted in a variety of ways for easy access and use, and will add resources continually over time. The Resource Center is available to all professionals interested in the subject matter, irrespective of whether they are NIC participants.

To make the Center as robust and beneficial as possible, we welcome recommendations of relevant content that users encounter elsewhere, that they have produced themselves, or that they are already utilizing. Please fill out and submit the form below to provide your suggestions and comments, or send an email to NIC@stewardsofchange.org.
