Advancing Interoperability Through Recognized Standards: ONC’s Interoperability Standards Advisory
DESCRIPTION: First published by ONC in January, 2015, the Interoperability Standards Advisory (ISA) has grown considerably from a short document that identified standards and implementation specifications for specific health IT purposes, to a well-curated, interactive web platform that is monitored by stakeholders and updated in near-real-time to reflect the latest changes in the health IT standards landscape. Join this session to learn about the ISA’s purpose, structure, process for updates, as well as some of this year’s most notable changes and additions.
Creating a Data Infrastructure for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research
DESCRIPTION: Research drives innovation and scientific discovery. As health IT use increases among individuals, providers, and public health entities, it creates a rich source of data. An integrated health system that uses data from multiple sources can facilitate analysis of real-world variations in tests and treatments, identify the best outcomes, and help accelerate dissemination of this information to clinicians and patients. ONC leads projects that collectively develop policy, standards, and services necessary to expand the data infrastructure for patient-centered outcomes research. Specifically, ONC’s projects focus on facilitating the re-use of structured data captured within EHRs; extracting data from multiple health IT systems to expand the ability of users to create value out of their data; developing a policy framework for patient-generated health data; matching, aggregating, and linking patient data; and, developing a legal and policy framework for conducting research.
