Da Vinci is creating the foundation to solve large scale industry problems.

The HL7 January FHIR Connectathon  was a success, with all examples from the implementation guides (IGs) tested, including over 20 test cases.

The HL7 Da Vinci Project, through its efforts that include Connectathons, “continues to focus on solving real-world data exchange challenges between payers and providers,” said Vanessa Candelora, Da Vinci’s project manager and senior consultant with Point-of-Care Partners, at the Jan. 26 Da Vinci Community Roundtable. “Da Vinci is creating the foundation to solve large scale industry problems, including, risk and quality data sharing and workflow; unlocking data or freeing data needed for patient costs; and reducing provider burden.”

Candelora called HL7 Connectathons, “a fundamentally human-powered endeavor,” praising Da Vinci as “a really great community,” with a multi-stakeholder membership that includes providers, payers, vendors, industry partners and EHRs. “We continue to grow and learn from each other in this party of the willing.”

Candelora added that founders of Da Vinci are pleased with the amount of work the group has accomplished in such a short time. “They really couldn't have envisioned the impact and the progress that this project has made,” she said.

HL7 Da Vinci Project October Community Roundtable to Highlight Clinical Data Exchange

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 21, 2021 4:28:36 PM / by Diana Manos posted in FHIR, Payers, Da Vinci, value based care, FHIR Accelerator, CDex, clinical data exchange

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment

The Da Vinci Project’s October Community Roundtable, to be held Oct. 27 from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. EDT, will feature Clinical Data Exchange (CDex)

This “Swiss army knife” of implementation guides (IGs) is responsible for identifying, documenting and constraining specific patterns of exchange so that providers and payers can reliably share patient information and coordinate care.

The scope of the CDex encompasses defining combinations of exchange methods with specific payloads, search criteria, conformance, provenance, and other relevant requirements, to support specific exchanges of clinical information between providers and and/or payers. CDex is also responsible for aiding in risk adjustment and quality reporting--and it helps payers to identify whether a requested service is necessary and appropriate.

The roundtable, titled, “Harnessing Clinical Data Exchange (CDex) to Improve Performance within Value-Based Care,” will give a current snapshot of the functionality, benefits and capabilities of CDex, helping providers to share the clinical data they have generated with payers and other industry partners.

At the roundtable, members of the Providence team will share their strategy for using CDex to support payer value-based care arrangements focusing on their initial target to achieve supplemental data exchange.

Presenters will include:

  • Viet Nguyen, MD, Technical Director, HL7 Da Vinci Project, and Clinical Informaticist, Stratametrics, LLC
  • Semira Singh, Product Manager, Population Health Informatics, Providence
  • Michael Westover, Vice President, Population Health Informatics, Providence

Come to the roundtable and learn how HL7 is making progress on CDex, with its eye on what remains to be conquered to provide the fully maximized data exchange needed to support value-based care. The good news is, HL7® Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR®) is helping to drive interoperability forward, and Da Vinci is poised to accelerate that data exchange in such a way that it will greatly reduce the burden between providers and payers.
