Introduction to VANGUARD Working Group:
Please join us for our first HL7 call for the VANGUARD Coordinated Registry Network. The purpose of this call will be introductory.
VANGUARD CRN is working on developing standardized vocabulary in the vascular access (especially chronic central venous access) domain, across all stakeholders. There is an approved HL7 PSS, with sponsorship from CIC and co-sponsorship from CIMI.
VANGUARD is also working with a coalition to evolve an infrastructure that will identify COVID-19 contacts and improve containment of infectious transmission.
This solution relies heavily on a quantum privacy network and data access authorization. It will make use of data sourcing from CDC, state and local health authorities, and the Veterans Administration as well as other relevant data repositories containing identities of known COVID-19-infected individuals (index cases). Project partners will construct secure link relationships for these index cases, and search persistence links with potential contacts.
The system will communicate with potential contacts with higher risk profiles. Communication includes notification of potential contact risk, education regarding contact risk, and recommendations for risk mitigation (extreme social distancing, self-quarantine, testing, etc.).
The system will also enroll and consent potential contacts, requesting various levels of access to contact health data relevant to suspicious signs and symptoms, co-morbidities, and other factors that may increase likelihood of infection, risk of complicated infection, and risk of re-transmission.
Reporting of high-risk potential contacts to health authorities and heat map analysis will assist tracking of patterns of transmission and direct appropriate resources and response.
