be an institutional commitment to digitize all paper records and make them available electronically in image format to all care providers. Even if capturing paper records in such a form would not make all of their content machine readable, it would go a long way toward eliminating the widely acknowledged problem of record unavailability that plagues a large number of patient-provider visits. And the infrastructure needed for such efforts could be used in the future to support other applications.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
