Using this case study, identify what this organization had to think about in terms of integration, interfaces and data reliability, when they began this project. What have they likely had to plan for once local hospitals started transitioning to electronic health records?

After reading the case study, the organization is called INPC and includes most of the Regenstrief Medical Record System (RMRS) clinical record. The Shared Pathology Informatics Network (SPIN) helps to make research easier. Research for cancer patient has really used this organization. “Because the cost of standardizing a given kind of data source is relatively independent of the volume of data produced, new LHIIs must focus their limited resources on the high-volume data producers, to have any hope of reaching critical mass.”
