The mission of the WG is to convene and coordinate payers, health plans, consumers, providers, and other organizations (e.g. ACOs, SDOs, HIEs) to optimize and improve the administrative/clinical (not direct patient care) exchange of information for:

  • Identifying gaps in care and quality Levels,
  • Performing Care Overview/Oversight,
  • Informing care
  • Population management/overview/oversight

This may result in developing artifacts including but not limited to Implementation Guides, Health Stories, and Use Cases to support:

  • healthcare claims or encounters
  • healthcare services review (e.g., prior authorizations/precertification’s, referrals)
  • claim audits
  • coverage requirements discovery
  • value based care (e.g., analytics, care management, reporting, care gaps etc.)
  • providing patient access to healthcare data


PIE WG will produce normative and informative standards for administrative and clinical records/data sharing between healthcare entities to support payer/provider processes.   We will work closely with appropriate Work Groups to coordinate HL7 artifacts. PIE will actively review administrative information interchange standards other than HL7 in attempt to improve the development of interoperable standards and operating rules.

Formal Relationship with Groups Outside of HL7

The work group also collaborates with Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) and the Regenstrief Institute in conjunction with the LOINC® (Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes) Committee, National Committee on Vital Health Statistics (NCVHS), and Office of the National Coordinator (ONC).
