The intricacies and the size of the healthcare enterprise in the United States means that extraordinary measures are needed to encourage the industry to move forward in some coherent manner. The Department of Commerce, through its Advanced Technology Program, has formed cooperative partnerships with industry to develop infrastructure, implementation efforts and applications.
