Curious About Quality? Plan to Attend the July CodeX Community of Practice

[fa icon="calendar"] Jul 12, 2023 10:58:25 AM / by Leslie Amorós


Hear about the ONC’s USCDI+ Quality Initiative and learn the latest about the Quality Measures for Cancer Use Case on July 28

During this month’s Community of Practice session, CodeX shines a light on quality measures with special guests from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). The virtual meeting will be held Friday, July 28, 2023, 12 noon – 1:00 p.m . EDT and features two presentations:

1. Collectively Building the Next Generation of Quality Measures: A Discussion with the ONC on Quality Standards and Leveraging USCDI+ Quality

Kyle Cobb, acting deputy director of standards, and Lisa Wagner, senior advisor, both of the ONC, will discuss the development of the United States Core Data for Interoperability Plus (USCDI+) Quality initiative. They will share use cases and updates on collaborative efforts with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), among others, to support the USCDI+ Quality initiative. They will then engage in a discussion with the CodeX community regarding USCDI+ Quality data elements and any potential gaps as they plan for the next generation of quality measurement.

2. CodeX Quality Measures for Cancer: Use Case Overview and Next Steps

To complement the discussion, Anthony DiDonato, senior healthcare analyst at MITRE, and Gail Winters, integrations architect at Telligen, will share an overview and early successes from the Quality Measures for Cancer use case, which aims to highlight new quality measures that could be developed – and new insights that could be made – if the minimal Common Oncology Data Elements (mCODE) FHIR Implementation Guide (an open standard language for cancer data) and other FHIR implementation guides were implemented and leveraged by an ecosystem of willing health organizations. The ultimate goal is to provide a path to meaningful data collection with reduced burden.
