||On August 17, 2007, Secretary Leavitt will lead an AHIC successor informational session that is open to the public. The purpose of the three-hour session is to raise awareness of the implementation strategy for an AHIC successor organization and encourage collaboration among private and public organizations to form the successor organization.
At this meeting, the Secretary will lay out an AHIC successor vision, expectations, and approach that will take advantage of the momentum gained by the current AHIC Federal advisory committee and will offer an opportunity to a broad spectrum of health care industry stakeholders to participate in the new organization. The Secretary will engage in an interactive question and answer session.
A Notice of Funding Availability (NoFA) to resource an entity designated to design and establish the AHIC successor by Spring 2008 will be issued in August and a grant will be awarded this Fall. In early September 2007, another public meeting will be held to answer detailed questions related to the Notice of Funding Availability.
