or existing exporters could be facilitated through the entire export process.

users understand this information, and offer wizards and tutorials to help
users determine if rules apply to them and how to proceed. Enable permits to be completed, submitted and approved online, to the maximum extent possible.
||Consolidated Health Informatics
||Provide a simplified and unified system for sharing
and reusing medical record information among government agencies and their
private health care providers and insurers. Provide a single mechanism
for making those records accessible.
