      • Related to CMS rule - requires payers to have at least 1 real time benefit tool 
      • daVinci - deals with provision of formulary information - project will be providing full formulary 
        • but this is not the use case that is defined in the daVinci Formulary project
      • There is overlap between the daVinci, but this is not patient specific in scope at this point
      • The Cairn project is patient-specific
    • Pooja will discuss further with Bob and Jocelyn (daVinci) - to understand scope and overlap
      • Since the daVinci IG is owned by Pharmacy - believe the Project should be sponsored by Pharmacy WG instead of Financial Management
      • should link the two IGs together
