FCW : November and December 2014
includes point-of-contact metadata and lineage to link to previous ver- sions of the exchange. That detailed documentation pro- vides the ability to reuse exchanges, thereby saving significant development time and providing a means by which additional organizations can more eas- ily implement exchanges as they reuse and enhance existing IEPDs. In the past few years, there has been a competition to recognize the “best of NIEM.” Here are a couple of examples from the crop of 2013 winners: • Government officials in Richmond, Va., identified multiple points of failure in a manual exchange of information from commercial alarm-monitoring companies to 911 public safety answer- ing points. Officials used NIEM to help automate the flow of information so that when someone hits the panic but- ton on a PSAP-connected private secu- rity system, the “call to action” to first responders takes less than 15 seconds. That is much quicker than the two min- utes or longer for the manual process. Richmond officials also created a public/private partnership that is help- ing other communities to adopt the sys- tem. Local governments now using the solution include Houston; Washington, D.C.; and Tempe, Ariz. • Probationers and parolees might have an interaction with law enforcement, such as an arrest, but their probation or parole officers might not learn about that contact until days or even weeks later. Through an automated exchange between the state’s booking system and probation and parole case manage- ment systems, the Hawaii Integrated Justice Information Sharing program has enabled near-real-time notification to probation and parole officers when one of their supervisees is arrested any- where in the state. As an example of reuse, Vermont was able to extend the capability to meet the state’s require- ments in less than a month. All 50 states and at least 16 federal agencies have implemented or are con- sidering solutions that use NIEM. Even foreign governments, including Can- ada and Australia, use NIEM, which means “National” is now a misnomer. Yet because NIEM started with justice information sharing, there are still mis- understandings about its applicability. NIEM’s value can benefit everything the government does. I urge the Obama administration to champion its use throughout the government. In fiscally constrained times, NIEM is something the federal government can steward for all levels of government to reuse. NIEM has a better return on investment for government than anything else we can invest in. I urge you to learn more and get involved with what the NIEM com- munity is doing by visiting NIEM.gov. ■ CIOPerspective 36 November/December 2014 FCW.COM In this webcast, Dr. Taha Kass-Hout, Chief Health Informatics Officer at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, will discuss how the FDA is leveraging the cloud as part of the OpenFDA initiative.
