USCDI+ In Action! ONC and HRSA launch USCDI+ Initiative...

29 August 2022

A few months ago, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) launched the USCDI+ initiative to support the identification and establishment of domain or program-specific datasets that will operate as extensions to the existing United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI). Recently, our colleagues at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) saw an opportunity to leverage USCDI+ and we have now launched a new USCDI+ collaboration to support HRSA’s Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting through the UDS Modernization Initiative.

Using Health IT Integration to Address the Drug Overdose...

23 August 2022

The drug overdose crisis in the United States continues to expand – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 107,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in 2021, an increase of nearly 15% from 93,655 deaths estimated in 2020.
From 2018 to 2022, as part of efforts to support health IT use in response to the continued increase in drug overdose deaths, ONC and CDC collaborated to develop an interactive tool and resource called the Integration Framework.

Project [email protected] – Advancing Health Equity Requires Better Data

9 August 2022

One of the single greatest social determinants of health is where a patient lives.  It can determine their risk factor for a specific illness or chronic disease, such as asthma, and can also affect much broader measures of well-being and life expectancy. Thus, our ability as healthcare professionals to measure and act on such factors relies heavily on how we accurately capture and manage standardized patient addresses. The standardization of patient address data across healthcare strengthens our ability to measure the social,

An Innovative Program to Expand the Use of HIE Data for...

26 July 2022

ONC is excited to announce “Using Machine Learning Techniques to Enable Health Information Exchange to Support COVID-19-Focused PCOR,” a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Trust Fund project implementing new technologies and standards to unlock the potential for health information exchanges (HIEs) to support research.
This project will pilot the use of a novel, privacy-preserving machine learning technique called split learning in several HIEs to understand its applicability and suitability for widespread adoption by HIEs.

FAST Continues FHIR Scalability Work as a New HL7 FHIR Accelerator

23 June 2022

The HL7® Fast Heathcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR ®) at Scale Taskforce (FAST) initiative has officially left the nest and taken flight!  In 2017, ONC spearheaded the FHIR at Scale Taskforce, a public-private partnership with industry stakeholders, to accelerate the scalability of FHIR across the industry. Since its inception, FAST grew larger and shifted focus from identifying FHIR scalability challenges to proposing new solutions, including new standards development, so it made sense for FAST to find a new home.

Sharing Genomic Data for Patient Care – Sync for Genes Phase 4 Wraps Up

21 June 2022

The Sync for Genes program, launched by ONC in 2017 in partnership with the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program, aims to enable the sharing of standardized genomic information among laboratories, providers, patients, and researchers by advancing the development and use of industry-supported standards, such as the Health Level Seven International® (HL7®) Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources® (FHIR®) standard.

This work has been advanced by pilot site demonstration projects conducted through a series of project phases.

Using Health IT to Support Safer Use and Management of Controlled Substance Prescriptions

8 June 2022

New ONC data show that, as of 2021, nearly all non-federal acute care hospitals were enabled to electronically prescribe controlled substances (EPCS).
According to the American Hospital Association (AHA) Information Technology (IT) Supplement Survey, the proportion of non-federal acute care hospitals enabled for EPCS increased from 67% in 2018 to 96% in 2021. Increased adoption of EPCS by hospitals is significant because e-prescribing enhances hospitals’ capability to ensure patient safety, avoid errors associated with paper-based prescribing,
