To kick off this month’s Da Vinci Project Community Roundtable, which is slated for Wednesday, April 22, at 4 p.m. EST, Deputy Chief Health Informatics Officer at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Alexandra Mugge will provide a high-level overview of the final rule update on interoperability and patient access. It will then take an in-depth look at two use cases presented by GuideWell and Edifecs to see how organizations are using the Da Vinci Project implementation guides to streamline the exchange of information between payers and providers.

GuideWell and Edifecs Present:  Payer Coverage Decision Exchange (PCDE) and Alerts/Notifications Use Cases

GuideWell and Edifecs have been working as ongoing partners to aggressively promote the work of the HL7 Da Vinci Project, and in particular, bring its common vision to life by investing in the development of technical capabilities that support real-world patient care use cases leveraging FHIR-based models for patient information sharing. Based upon work the two partners have been doing over the past year, GuideWell and Edifecs will present two important Da Vinci use cases:

  1. Payer Coverage Decision Exchange (PCDE)
  2. Alerts/Notifications

Presenting with them will be healow Insights and Mettle Solutions to highlight the baseline interoperability that Da Vinci offers across all healthcare stakeholders. They will specifically show how other payers and providers can exchange interoperable data in support of delivering better, more effective care to patients.
