Da Vinci Project's Monthly Meeting to Describe Progress on Price Cost Transparency and Risk Adjustment Initiatives on Wednesday Event, 9/22 at 4:00 pm ET

Important updates on two implementation guide initiatives and a demo of how standards could support prior authorization burden reduction are on the agenda for the next Community Roundtable of the Da Vinci Project.

The roundtable will begin with an update from the project management office of the Da Vinci Project, which will feature updates on the status of the Price Cost Transparency and Risk Adjustment Implementation Guides (IGs). These efforts to use HL7® Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR®) are more complex than previous initiatives. Both efforts anticipate challenges that the industry will face to make healthcare costs more transparent and to accurately reflect patients’ comprehensive conditions and risks related to reimbursement for coverage.

After the update, the prior authorization demonstration will show how FHIR IGs can be used to reduce administrative challenge of anticipating prior authorization documentation requirements, a nagging concern within the industry.

Project Achieves a Tipping Point as Adoption Begins in Earnest to Meet Upcoming and Proposed Federal Regulation and Solve Interoperability Challenges

The Da Vinci Project made significant progress in 2020 in advancing the maturity of implementation guides, and now looks to increasingly demonstrate the value of its implementation guides (IGs) across production implementations this year.

Members of the HL7 FHIR® Accelerator group helped push forward work on several implementation guides that were published in 2020, but further refinement lies ahead, said project managers who presented a progress report on the Da Vinci Project at its January Community Roundtable.

In addition to the update on progress with publishing new standards, the presentation offered members a tour of the Da Vinci Project’s enhanced Confluence website, as well as an invitation for more organizations to consider membership to help ensure implementation guides meet the needs of the entire healthcare community.

This year, there will be a growing need to use the HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standard, as application programming interfaces (APIs) emerge to meet federal information exchange requirements and business needs of value-based care.
