HL7 ANSI Anti-Trust Policy

HL7 adheres to the ANSI Anti-Trust policy.  We should avoid sharing any information on this call that could be interpreted as anti-competitive.  If there are topics that you don’t normally speak about in other public settings, such as conferences or trade shows, then it’s probably best to save those topics for another time as this is a public call. If you have any questions you can refer to the GOM section 05.01 or consult your companies legal division.

Advancing Interoperability and Improving Prior Authorization NPRM 

Discussion Guide review

Chris and Tony, with BCBSAL, are reviewing and have a meeting on Thursday internally to discuss.  Payers have an interest, but are hoping that vendors will have prototypes available.

Rebekah. with the ADA, stated that the limitation of USCDI v1 does not meet the needs for dental because it does not have CDT. 

Comment:  Propose Adopting USCDI v2.  Rebekah also stated that dental does not use FHIR.

Comment:  In order to reduce the burden of the healthcare industry, CMS should consider removing the requirement for using 278 and replace it with
the FHIR standard. This will introduce a single standard supporting real time
exchange of clinical data and would benefit the Healthcare industry. See document for additional comments.
