All 6 documents download with the same title ('sub') which seems a bit sloppy, since other inquiries bother to name theirs sensibly.

If folks read just one of these submissions, read the one from Healthlink. It nails several key points about just how hard it is to pull off a shared EHR especially when the content is drawn from multiple sources. It recalls how other attempts, better planned and resourced than this one, have failed to deliver. But crucially it points out that there is a huge opportunity cost in becoming fixated on this one ill-conceived (my description) project at the expense of others which could have a much greater impact on health costs and outcomes. Read the submission!
