The Da Vinci Project’s April Community Roundtable to be held April 27 from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. ET

Why does interoperability require governance? Find out at this month’s April HL7 Da Vinci Community Roundtable.

This month’s session, Effective Interoperability Governance: The People, Processes and Data, features multiple vantage points to approaching interoperability governance and its complexities in our HL7 FHIR API landscape around people, processes and data.

Learn about the meaning of governance and the importance, challenges and lessons learned when applying these guardrails from four different perspectives: an Accountable Care Organization, an academic medical center, a payer and an IT vendor. Critical considerations around process controls, systems and frameworks will also be addressed.

Presenters include:

  • Michael Gould, Business Lead – Interoperability, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association 
  • Michael B. Marchant, Director, Health Information Exchange, UC Davis Health
  • Charlotte Morris, Data Governance Program Director, MultiCare Connected Care
  • Lukasz Nosol, Senior Director, Software Development - Enterprise Clinical Integration and Interoperability, Optum

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.
