General CMS Connectathon Participant Information:

Justification and Objectives

This project defines a FHIR interface to a directory of a health insurer’s in-network providers and pharmacies for patients/consumers. The PDEX Plan-Net Implementation Guide was recently ballotted for STU and comments are currently being addressed and resolved.

Note: The Connectathon will use the STU1 ballot version of the IG, not the Continuous Integration build.

The objectives of the hackathon are:

  • Test and gather feedback on the design and implementation feasibility of the PDEX Plan-Net model and its FHIR Implementation Guide to drive ballot reconciliation.
  • Identify areas of improvement and expansion of the PDEX Plan-Net model to future use cases.
  • Foster mindshare and innovation ideas on potential applications using the PDEX Plan-Net

This track will use the R4 version of FHIR.
