FHIR Development Project Insight ID:

1571

Scope of coverage:

This guide leverages the eLTSS work to provide the profiles and necessary extensions required to specify how to syntactically and semantically exchange functional status post-acute care assessment data between care settings.

Content location:

https://paciowg.github.io/functional-status-ig/index.html

Proposed IG realm and code:

US/pacio-fs

Maintenance Plan:

The PACIO Project intends to provide ongoing support of this implementation guide.

Short Description:

Develop a FHIR R4 IG that leverages the eLTSS work to provide the profiles and necessary extensions required to specify how to syntactically and semantically exchange functional status post-acute care assessment data between care settings.

Long Description:

Poor quality discharge information is a major barrier to safe and effective transitions. With 45% of Medicare beneficiaries requiring post-acute care (PAC) services after hospitalization, the need for a seamless exchange of health information is great.

...

Required assessment content includes standardized questions and response options (aka “data elements”) for assessing a patient’s functional status.

This FHIR R4 IG seeks to leverage the eLTSS work to provide the profiles and necessary extensions required to specify how to syntactically and semantically exchange
that functional status post-acute care assessment data between care settings.

Involved parties:

This implementation guide is being developed by the clinical, EHR, and client app organizations as part of the PACIO Project.

Expected implementations:

MITRE, Patient Centric Solutions

Content sources:

Requirements are drawn from the IMPACT Act and clinical, EHR, and client app organizations as part of the PACIO Project.

Example Scenarios:

A patient is discharged from an acute care facility and admitted into a post-acute care facility.  The post-acute care facility can retrieve the results of functional status assessments from the acute care facility's FHIR API.

IG Relationships:

This guide will reference, where possible, the "standards" defined by Argonaut, US Core efforts for FHIR R4, and eLTSS.

Timelines:

STU Ballot in May 2020
