Real-world testing of the CARIN CDPDE IGCARIN Consumer Directed Payer Data Exchange (CARIN IG For Blue Button®)
The CARIN Alliance Health Plan Workgroup was organized to develop a FHIR-based API that could be sent to a consumer-facing application and was designed to answer the challenge for health plans to ‘meet or exceed’ the CMS Blue Button 2.0 capabilities. The CMS Blue Button 2.0 project provides over 53 million Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries access to their electronic claims information.
The CARIN Consumer Directed Payer Data Exchange Implementation Guide (CARIN IG For Blue Button®) was balloted in December for STU and comments are currently being addressed and resolved. Updates to the IG are being made to the continuous build once voted on and approved by the HL7 Financial Management Work Group.
The objectives of this track are:
- Test and gather feedback on the Implementation Guide
- Identify gaps or errors
- Test an Implementation Guide
