|USCDI -Rubric Rules – Scorecard Updates|
The United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) standard will replace the Common Clinical Data Set (CCDS) definition 24 months after publication of the final rule (May 1, 2020) - i.e. May 2, 2022. However the enforcement date has been pushed back three months to August 2, 2022.
The C-CDA Rubric Guide was published on May 19, 2020 - providing guidance for required and informative rubrics and organized into three categories:
Goal of the Rubrics Guide is to promote the development of quality assessment tools and improve interoperability and secondary use of data. People can suggest rubrics on the HL7 C-CDA Rubric Criteria Project Page.
ONC C-CDA Scorecard R2.0 Beta Demo. R2.0 will be pushed out to production on June 1, 2020. The downloadable scorecard on Github will also be updated. Updated companion guide templates will be incorporated on June 30, 2020.
Q: Will the validator the rubric is using also be updated by June 1? A: Yes, but it will not be in the June 1 version of the scorecard.
Q: What is the go-forward process for adding requirements as USCDI grows? A: Criteria suggestions can be logged on the HL7 C-CDA Rubric Criteria Project Page (link above). The ONC is committed to updating the scorecard (provided funds are available).
Q: Are pediatric vitals required for all EHRs or is there a % of children to require EHRs to capture this information? A: This is a good question for the program.
Q: ONC offer tools for validation of the various clinical notes named in USCDI? A: Yes...but only for the mandatory templates.
Q: The number of issues is hard to see when you expand format. A: Yes. Matt will work with the team to see if there is a clearer way to present the information.
