Meeting Schedule

The Health Plan project meets every Monday between 2:30-3:30 pm ET. If you are interested in participating in project activities, please contact us.


The focus of the CARIN 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.

  • Leverage the Argonaut Project as a best practice approach
  • 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.
  • Flat File Format (Physical) Specification Representing (Logical) CPCDS Data Elements
  • Mapping From (Logical) CPCDS Data Elements To FHIR® Resource Profiles
  • CARIN Blue Button® Framework

The CARIN Blue Button® Implementation Guide (this is still in process and should not be viewed as final) and the PSS for CARIN Blue Button®
