1.New Details Added:  “Gaps in Care” Discussion at HIMSS18

  • Date/Time: Tuesday, March 6, 2018 / 12 noon to 1:30 p.m.
  • Location: HIMSS Strategic Services location in the Venetian; Toscana 3803, Level 3, Foyer East
  • Location: Meeting place is located in HIMSS Strategic Services area within the Venetian; Room - Toscana 3803, Level 3, Foyer East
  • Registration: Please RSVP soon with Nazy Kazerani (Nazanin.kazerani@mihin.org) as spaces are limited for this increasingly urgent topic.
  • Lunch: A box lunch will be served during this meeting

Please join us in an open discussion about effectively communicating patient-level quality measure results and gaps in care. There is currently no national standard for sharing this important information, forcing health care stakeholders to share measure results in a myriad of disparate and inefficient ways.

This panel will seek to define critical data elements that belong in any proposed specification for a national standard along with a format to share this information in a highly interoperable way. The eventual outcome will be a draft whitepaper wherein recommendations for a standard are formally proposed and submitted to HL7.
