National Institutes of Health (NIH)
National Library of Medicine - Grants for Research, Training, and Access to Informatics Resources - Research grants and contracts for advanced computer technologies to facilitate access, storage, and use of biomedical information, and for the value derived from the adoption, diffusion, and utilization of HIT.
National Library of Medicine - Grants for Research, Training, and Access to Informatics Resources - Support for training of informatics researchers and developers.
National Library of Medicine - Grants for Research, Training, and Access to Informatics Resources - Support for Integrated Advanced Information Networks (IAIMS), Internet connections, and access to digital libraries.
National Library of Medicine - Development and Implementation of Controlled Clinical Vocabularies - Support for, and development of, selected CHI standard clinical vocabularies to enable ongoing maintenance and free use within the United States.
National Library of Medicine - Development and Implementation of Controlled Clinical Vocabularies - Uniform distribution and mapping of HIPAA code sets, CHI standard vocabularies, HL7 code sets, and other important vocabularies within the UMLS Metathesaurus.
National Electronic Clinical Trials and Research (NECTAR) Network - NIH plans to develop NECTAR, which will link research sites and ultimately create a national network of networks, in coordination with the national health information network, by which research information and findings will be shared and scientific collaborations facilitated. NECTAR includes a research workflow model, a common lexicon of standard vocabularies to describe medical and scientific events, and analytical and dissemination tools.
Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) - caBIG is a virtual cancer research network of interconnected data, individuals, and organizations that will create a common, widely distributed infrastructure that facilitates the sharing of data and applications and thereby enhances productivity and efficiency of research. caBIG infrastructure is based on HHS CHI standards. caBIG is being pursued as a pilot program that involves NCIs caCORE central resources, over 40 of NCIs cancer centers, and the FDA. The NCI has created a standards-supporting infrastructure called caCORE. It is composed of HHS-established controlled vocabularies, standard data elements, and domain models.
