Christol provided summary of US Realm meeting.

Gravity SDOH -  STU2 ballot. Race and Ethnicity issue with US CORE (NCQA measures 5 going to 10, but US CORE not compatible)

The challenge is that US Core does not break down Patient Characteristics as to where the codes come form, but provenance of data is required.  Race is part of the Census Bureau and some of the codes need to be fixed.  The CDC only reviews yearly data and we need help getting them to make changes.  Stanley stated that Steve Posniak (ONC) is the US Realm co-chair and may be able to help with the CDC.

Dental - Russ & GregSept 17-18 Connectathon 31 track.  Russ stated that Dental will not have a track next week at the CMS connectathon, but should have one at the connectathon in Sept at the WG meeting.  There will be weekly meetings on Mondays to frame up a profile based on CCDA on FHIR.  Implementers prefer FHIR.  Vendors may not be ready for the connectathon.  Provider groups are interested in vendors providing this.  Greg stated that provider documents may be available for payers and patients in the future.
