Question on rules and goals
What does it mean to be "installed on" a LHP site? Does a hosted solution that is simply linked to from the LHP site qualify? If not, is it really expected that a new innovation really get built and deployed to 25,000 LHPs in 3 months? Getting anywhere near that immediately discounts any new vendor that doesn't already have a large install base that can be simply "upgraded" with the application.
If the solution can be hosted, how does that relate to the requirement to provide source code to the VA. Specifically, if I were to implement the blue button function as an add on to an existing service it is not reasonable to expect source code to be released.
Finally, have to agree with comments on some of the other discussion points that it does not make sense to me that a more common interchange format like XML is not exportable. Much easier for me to add value to the application if i can parse the data programmatically and render it in a way that makes sense based on the use desired by the patient or LHP.
