The mCODE Community of Practice is a group of health systems and other CodeX members working together within the CodeX HL7 FHIR Accelerator.  

The goal of the CoP is to facilitate implementation of mCODE – the minimal Common Oncology Data Elements and extensions into production Electronic Health Record systems and other systems. Think of the CoP as an early-phase use case centered around basic collection and sharing of mCODE-based data. The collaborative work of this group will ultimately improve cancer care and research across a range of future use cases developed in CodeX and elsewhere.

Contact Zeshan Rajput and Blake Bergstrom to learn more and join the conversation.

Member Involvement

Joining the Community of Practice is free and open to all interested parties. An impressive set of organizations have joined past Community calls. Via the Community of Practice, members can expect to:

  • Stay apprised of the latest developments for mCODE, CodeX, and cancer data exchange
  • Develop and share best practices for clinical workflows, data modeling, and exchange
  • Have a venue to ask questions and learn from the experience of other community members

Member Activities

The Community of Practice fosters the conversation around cancer data and mCODE implementation through:

  • A monthly conference call where community leaders present updates on mCODE and CodeX. Community participants are invited to present on topics of interest to the community
  • This community web page is where members can review previous calls and minutes, reach out to fellow community members, hold discussions, and more
  • A periodic newsletter that summarizes the latest developments and highlights where community members can go to get more information

Conference Call Schedule & Dial-Ins

Conference Call info can be found on the calendar invites to the monthly meetings.
