HHS is seeking public comment through Jan. 18 to further develop its proposal for a national health information network for moving electronic information among providers, patients and payers. Among the questions being asked are: Who should pay for building and operating the network? How should privacy and security be maintained? What kind of financial incentives should be offered?
