The focus of the Consumer Directed Payer Data Exchange (CARIN IG for Blue Button®) Project is to develop a consumer payer data set (similar to CMS Medicare Blue Button® 2.0) and corresponding implementation guide for the set of resources that payers can display to consumers via a FHIR® API.
Common Payer Consumer Data Set (CPCDS)
Includes key health data that should be accessible and available for exchange.
Data must conform with specified vocabulary standards and code sets.
CPCDS data elements can be stored and queried as profiled FHIR® resources.
Data Query Profiles
Based on CPCDS, define the minimum mandatory elements, extensions and terminology requirements that must be present in the FHIR® resource.
Data Query Implementation Guide
Collection of security specifications, profile definitions and supporting documentation.
The guide satisfies use cases for member access to health plan data, ensuring the CPCDS elements are included and modeled in a standard format.
