The HL7 Da Vinci Project recently named eight healthcare technology experts as its 2021 Da Vinci Community Champions. The individuals recognized for this prestigious honor represent the diverse membership of the HL7® Da Vinci Project, a collaborative multi-stakeholder effort including health plans, hospital systems, accountable care organizations (ACOs) and technology vendors. The awards were announced on July 20, 2022, at the monthly HL7 Da Vinci Project member meeting. This is the second year in which the HL7® Da Vinci Project has recognized innovative leaders in health IT who are helping to guide the evolution of the HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standard.

As a designated HL7 FHIR accelerator program, the Da Vinci Project is a private sector consortium dedicated to improving the healthcare delivery system by accelerating interoperability standards to support value-based care, reduce administrative burden, automate workflow and improve provider teams’ ability to impact health outcomes.

Last year, the Da Vinci Project leadership created the Community Champions Program to recognize and celebrate the talented problem solvers advancing interoperability within the industry. The Community Champion Program puts a spotlight on individuals who display the unique traits of “industry above self, a passion for making the healthcare system work better, supporting others, and promoting change.”

Computable Publishing LLC was pleased to sponsor the January 2022 HL7 Working Group Meeting, which aligns with our work towards creating software tools that support data exchange for scientific knowledge with HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®). In fact, many already know that our CEO, Brian Alper, is the leader of the Evidence-Based Medicine on the FHIR project (EBMonFHIR) and the COVID-19 Knowledge Accelerator (COKA) initiative.

Background & Expansion

EBMonFHIR (sponsored by the CDS, BR&R and CQI HL7 work groups) previously created Citation, Evidence, EvidenceReport and Evidenceariable Resources. The project expansion to the COKA initiative now involves 12 active working group meetings per week. The combination of volunteer efforts from about 100 people in many countries along with software tools (provided gratis to COKA by Computable Publishing LLC) has produced impressive results to advance evidence-based medicine (EBM) and promote the HL7 FHIR standard to the EBM community.
