The Government to Business Initiatives are committed to helping business interact efficiently and effectively with the Federal government. These Initiatives help reduce burden on businesses, provide one-stop access to information, and enable digital communication using the language of E-Business (XML).
Since 2002, businesses started to receive benefits from these Initiatives through a series of one-stop portals, such as Regulations.gov and Export.gov. For the first time, these sites provide comprehensive government-wide information related to business-oriented topics.
Business.gov allows businesses to access information about laws and regulations and relevant forms needed to comply with Federal requirements for their business. Aligned with the President’s 2004 National Health Information Technology Strategy, the Consolidated Health Informatics (CHI) Initiative has adopted health data standards to allow health information to be shared securely across government agencies and healthcare organizations.
