RHIO's are expected to be the first step of Statewide and National infrastructures. Each RHIO has had the latitude to develop based on their regional needs. Some States have provided funding via grants yet have not provided standards of minimum data sets so the infrastructure can, in the future, connect to a National Infrastructure. There does not seem to be a repository of what data elements RHIO's have decided to collect and what efforts were abandoned. If you are involved with a RHIO,
