3a. Project Scope

As part of the response to COVID-19, a coalition of health and technology leaders has created the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI; https://vaccinationcredential.org/). VCI’s goal is to provide a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results. This will be accomplished by using the SMART Health Cards framework (https://smarthealth.cards/), which works with both digital and paper workflows.
The SMART Health Cards framework does not specify the clinical content contained within. The purpose of the proposed FHIR Implementation Guide is to do just this: describe the contents of a FHIR Bundle that is contained within a Health Card.

The development of this IG is part of the VCI working group (n.b. that this is not a HL7 Work Group), which includes representatives from EHR vendors, large health systems, testing laboratories, and technology companies. We are working closely with experts from these organizations to inform the content and structure of the IG.

The resulting product of this effort will be a FHIR IG that Issuers of Health Cards can use to build and validate their implementation, and Verifiers of Health Cards can use to design their verification process.

This IG will examine how both US Core and International Patient Summary (IPS) IGs can be leveraged to create SMART Health Cards. Given the needs to have the FHIR bundle fit on a QR Code, we expect data minimization to exclude information that is not relevant to the use cases for SHC.

3b. Project Need

There is a pressing public health need to empower individuals with a convenient, standardized, equitable access to COVID-19 vaccination and testing status. The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a community-driven approach that uses the SMART Health Cards specification to solve this problem.
The goal of this IG is to facilitate and coordinate inclusion of key clinical data related to COVID (and other infectious diseases) by implementers of the SMART Health Cards framework. This is necessary to achieve the goal of a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results.

3c. Security Risk

No

3d. External Drivers

The timeline for this work is driven by the real-world need described above. Given the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving as quickly as possible to make a stable version of this Implementation Guide available to implementers; this will likely occur soon (by the end of March 2021) out of band with the typical HL7 balloting workflow.

3a. Project Scope

As part of the response to COVID-19, a coalition of health and technology leaders has created the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI; https://vaccinationcredential.org/). VCI’s goal is to provide a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results. This will be accomplished by using the SMART Health Cards framework (https://smarthealth.cards/), which works with both digital and paper workflows.
The SMART Health Cards framework does not specify the clinical content contained within. The purpose of the proposed FHIR Implementation Guide is to do just this: describe the contents of a FHIR Bundle that is contained within a Health Card.

The development of this IG is part of the VCI working group (n.b. that this is not a HL7 Work Group), which includes representatives from EHR vendors, large health systems, testing laboratories, and technology companies. We are working closely with experts from these organizations to inform the content and structure of the IG.

The resulting product of this effort will be a FHIR IG that Issuers of Health Cards can use to build and validate their implementation, and Verifiers of Health Cards can use to design their verification process.

This FHIR implementation guide will use the US Core profiles. If this FHIR implementation guide is unable to reuse a US Core profile we will log a variance request to be dispositioned by the Cross Projects WG with notification to US Realm.

While the intent of this project is to reuse US Core profiles, data minimization requirements make several unusable. At the time of this PSS submission, the project team is requesting variances for Patient, Immunization, and Observation for lab results.

3b. Project Need

There is a pressing public health need to empower individuals with a convenient, standardized, equitable access to COVID-19 vaccination and testing status. The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a community-driven approach that uses the SMART Health Cards specification to solve this problem.
The goal of this IG is to facilitate and coordinate inclusion of key clinical data related to COVID (and other infectious diseases) by implementers of the SMART Health Cards framework. This is necessary to achieve the goal of a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results.

3c. Security Risk

No

3d. External Drivers

The timeline for this work is driven by the real-world need described above. Given the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving as quickly as possible to make a stable version of this Implementation Guide available to implementers; this will likely occur soon (by the end of March 2021) out of band with the typical HL7 balloting workflow.

3a. Project Scope

As part of the response to COVID-19, a coalition of health and technology leaders has created the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI; https://vaccinationcredential.org/). VCI’s goal is to provide a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results. This will be accomplished by using the SMART Health Cards framework (https://smarthealth.cards/), which works with both digital and paper workflows.
The SMART Health Cards framework does not specify the clinical content contained within. The purpose of the proposed FHIR Implementation Guide is to do just this: describe the contents of a FHIR Bundle that is contained within a Health Card.

The development of this IG is part of the VCI working group (n.b. that this is not a HL7 Work Group), which includes representatives from EHR vendors, large health systems, testing laboratories, and technology companies. We are working closely with experts from these organizations to inform the content and structure of the IG.

The resulting product of this effort will be a FHIR IG that Issuers of Health Cards can use to build and validate their implementation, and Verifiers of Health Cards can use to design their verification process.

This FHIR implementation guide will use the US Core profiles. If this FHIR implementation guide is unable to reuse a US Core profile we will log a variance request to be dispositioned by the Cross Projects WG with notification to US Realm.

While the intent of this project is to reuse US Core profiles, data minimization requirements make several unusable. At the time of this PSS submission, the project team is requesting variances for Patient, Immunization, and Observation for lab results.

3b. Project Need

There is a pressing public health need to empower individuals with a convenient, standardized, equitable access to COVID-19 vaccination and testing status. The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a community-driven approach that uses the SMART Health Cards specification to solve this problem.
The goal of this IG is to facilitate and coordinate inclusion of key clinical data related to COVID (and other infectious diseases) by implementers of the SMART Health Cards framework. This is necessary to achieve the goal of a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results.

3c. Security Risk

No

3d. External Drivers

The timeline for this work is driven by the real-world need described above. Given the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving as quickly as possible to make a stable version of this Implementation Guide available to implementers; this will likely occur soon (by the end of March 2021) out of band with the typical HL7 balloting workflow.

3a. Project Scope

As part of the response to COVID-19, a coalition of health and technology leaders has created the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI; https://vaccinationcredential.org/). VCI’s goal is to provide a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results. This will be accomplished by using the SMART Health Cards framework (https://smarthealth.cards/), which works with both digital and paper workflows.
The SMART Health Cards framework does not specify the clinical content contained within. The purpose of the proposed FHIR Implementation Guide is to do just this: describe the contents of a FHIR Bundle that is contained within a Health Card.

The development of this IG is part of the VCI working group (n.b. that this is not a HL7 Work Group), which includes representatives from EHR vendors, large health systems, testing laboratories, and technology companies. We are working closely with experts from these organizations to inform the content and structure of the IG.

The resulting product of this effort will be a FHIR IG that Issuers of Health Cards can use to build and validate their implementation, and Verifiers of Health Cards can use to design their verification process.

This FHIR implementation guide will use the US Core profiles. If this FHIR implementation guide is unable to reuse a US Core profile we will log a variance request to be dispositioned by the Cross Projects WG with notification to US Realm.

While the intent of this project is to reuse US Core profiles, data minimization requirements make several unusable. At the time of this PSS submission, the project team is requesting variances for Patient, Immunization, and Observation for lab results.

3b. Project Need

There is a pressing public health need to empower individuals with a convenient, standardized, equitable access to COVID-19 vaccination and testing status. The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a community-driven approach that uses the SMART Health Cards specification to solve this problem.
The goal of this IG is to facilitate and coordinate inclusion of key clinical data related to COVID (and other infectious diseases) by implementers of the SMART Health Cards framework. This is necessary to achieve the goal of a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results.

3c. Security Risk

No

3d. External Drivers

The timeline for this work is driven by the real-world need described above. Given the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving as quickly as possible to make a stable version of this Implementation Guide available to implementers; this will likely occur soon (by the end of March 2021) out of band with the typical HL7 balloting workflow.

3a. Project Scope

As part of the response to COVID-19, a coalition of health and technology leaders has created the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI; https://vaccinationcredential.org/). VCI’s goal is to provide a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results. This will be accomplished by using the SMART Health Cards framework (https://smarthealth.cards/), which works with both digital and paper workflows.
The SMART Health Cards framework does not specify the clinical content contained within. The purpose of the proposed FHIR Implementation Guide is to do just this: describe the contents of a FHIR Bundle that is contained within a Health Card.
The development of this IG is part of the VCI working group (n.b. that this is not a HL7 Work Group), which includes representatives from EHR vendors, large health systems, testing laboratories, and technology companies. We are working closely with experts from these organizations to inform the content and structure of the IG.
The resulting product of this effort will be a FHIR IG that Issuers of Health Cards can use to build and validate their implementation, and Verifiers of Health Cards can use to design their verification process.

3b. Project Need

There is a pressing public health need to empower individuals with a convenient, standardized, equitable access to COVID-19 vaccination and testing status. The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a community-driven approach that uses the SMART Health Cards specification to solve this problem.
The goal of this IG is to facilitate and coordinate inclusion of key clinical data related to COVID (and other infectious diseases) by implementers of the SMART Health Cards framework. This is necessary to achieve the goal of a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results.

3c. Security Risk

No

3d. External Drivers

The timeline for this work is driven by the real-world need described above. Given the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving as quickly as possible to make a stable version of this Implementation Guide available to implementers; this will likely occur soon (by the end of March 2021) out of band with the typical HL7 balloting workflow.

We are working closely with experts from these organizations to inform the content and structure of the IG.
The resulting product of this effort will be a FHIR IG that Issuers of Health Cards can use to build and validate their implementation, and Verifiers of Health Cards can use to design their verification process.

3b. Project Need

There is a pressing public health need to empower individuals with a convenient, standardized, equitable access to COVID-19 vaccination and testing status. The Vaccination Credential Initiative is a community-driven approach that uses the SMART Health Cards specification to solve this problem.
The goal of this IG is to facilitate and coordinate inclusion of key clinical data related to COVID (and other infectious diseases) by implementers of the SMART Health Cards framework. This is necessary to achieve the goal of a trusted and verifiable copy of vaccination records, or other COVID-related laboratory test results.

3c. Security Risk

No

3d. External Drivers

The timeline for this work is driven by the real-world need described above. Given the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving as quickly as possible to make a stable version of this Implementation Guide available to implementers; this will likely occur soon (by the end of March 2021) out of band with the typical HL7 balloting workflow.
