Much of the associated content published by IHE is spread across multiple volumes of IHE Technical Frameworks and other supplemental material. To address this issue, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) has commissioned IHE USA to publish "IHE Profiles for Health Information Exchange," by Keith Boone, ‎Informatics Adept at ‎Audacious Inquiry as a freely available resource for the health information exchange community.

In honor of Bill’s memory, IHE USA has renamed its Interoperability Research Award Program as the Bill Majurski Interoperability Research Award Program so others that follow on the path he blazed will follow his lead and work to improve health information exchange. Since 2007, IHE USA has provided scholarship awards to support entrepreneurs, researchers, public health agencies, and health system developers that seek to participate in the IHE North American (NA) Connectathon. Future recipients of the Bill Majurski Interoperability Research Award will receive similar funding to cover their participation fees. Through this renamed program, we commit to honoring Bill’s memory and his numerous contributions to IHE.
