APIs for Research: Perspectives from App Developers and Data Integrators

Retrieved By Health eConsultation 0 57 Article rating: No rating

In ONC’s “App Developer and Data Integrator Perspectives” report [PDF – 511 KB] (Perspectives Report) – the third in the “Accelerating APIs” report series – we assess the current landscape of API-based health information exchange in a rapidly evolving electronic health data ecosystem. Perspectives of app developers and data integrators are presented to understand the emerging landscape of technology companies and their role in effective data aggregation, integration, and exchange.

Federal Efforts Promoting Standardized App Use

Together with the ONC Cures Act Final Rule and CMS Promoting Interoperability Programs,

Retrieved By Health eConsultation 0 257 Article rating: No rating

Editor’s Note: On April 14, 2022 at the ONC Annual Meeting, San Diego Health Connect will be demo-ing their project in the exhibit hall.
How can we improve the ability of patient to convey their preferences regarding access to and use of their electronic medical record information? San Diego Health Connect – a recipient of an ONC Leading Edge Acceleration Projects in Health IT (LEAP) program award – developed a scalable consent framework for electronic health records to help answer this question.

Today’s the day for Project [email protected]

Retrieved By Health eConsultation 0 448 Article rating: No rating

Earlier today we announced the release of the Project [email protected] (“Project USA”) Technical Specification Final Version 1.0 and thereby completed our one year goal to coordinate the creation of a health care specification that could be used across the industry for representing patient addresses (mailing, physical, billing, etc.). This new “tech spec” will advance the health care industry’s proficiency in recording and managing accurate and consistently formatted patient addresses and support more efficient patient matching and record linkage.

Standards Beyond the Clinic: Capturing Patient Health Data to Advance Precision Medicine

Retrieved By Health eConsultation 0 1101 Article rating: No rating

Does the neighborhood I live in affect my health? How am I going to be able to see the specialist without a car? Can I share blood pressure and blood sugar readings I take at home with my doctor so she can monitor how I’m doing? These critical questions have helped to drive precision medicine research as well as improving care management and coordination.
While researchers and providers seek to capture and integrate insightful patient data from non-clinical settings and understand how social and environmental issues impact health,

Taking a LEAP: Transposing the Apps Model for Individual Health Records to Population Health

Retrieved By Health eConsultation 0 1112 Article rating: No rating

Because of advances in interoperability, it’s becoming increasingly common for people and their healthcare providers to access and share information from electronic health records (EHRs) using apps. Could this same approach allow large-scale data sharing between healthcare provider organizations, payors (Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers), or public health officials? An app providing shared insights into a common dataset could transform the way value-based care is delivered and measured.
Hospitals could share subsets of EHR data with payors while using the system to gauge their own performance in terms of patient safety,

Exploring a New Computing Model to Enhance Health Care Analysis

Retrieved By Health eConsultation 0 1099 Article rating: No rating

To battle the COVID-19 pandemic, health professionals need immediate access to relevant health data in order to inform clinical decision making, conduct timely research, understand trends, and inform response efforts.
The pandemic, though, highlighted a known shortcoming of our nation’s health data infrastructure. Decision makers, like health care providers, must rely on information reporting services outside the health care system to obtain real-time epidemiological data that, even then, only showed a limited picture.
Before the pandemic started,
