  •  An NPRM was released and touches on a number of topics including information blocking, the use of FHIR APIs
  • Included in the NPRM is a request for information regarding possible future data exchange use cases with registries
    • ONC’s proposed rule includes a Request for Information (RFI) on how a standards-based API might support improved information exchange between a health care provider and a registry in support of public health reporting, quality reporting, and care quality improvement.
    • Public input on this RFI may be considered for future HHS rulemaking to support the bidirectional exchange of clinical data between health care providers and registries for a wide range of use cases.
  • HL7 is likely to submit comments through the PAC (no announcement has been made yet), so please collect any possible responses for inclusion in the HL7 response
