FHIR Connectathon: Clinical Reasoning

Our expertise with FHIR and also with Clinical Quality Measures makes us a natural to participate in the Clinical Reasoning track, which focuses on using FHIR to improve clinical outcomes. The two tracts our Dynamic Team participated in were:

  • ONC Certified EHR products will be required to support Bulk FHIR under the new 170.315(g)(1): Standardized API for Patient and Population Services.

  • Deadline for Rollout: End of 2022

  • Read our blog, FHIR Conectathon: Bulk Data for a developer's recap.

  • Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) are moving toward using FHIR as a data source.

  • Timeframe: No deadline yet. Should happen over the next few years.

During the Connectathon, we worked aggressively on the track and calculation of the listed measures:

Eligible Professional (EP)/Eligible Clinician (EC) Measures:

  • CMS 74v10: Primary Caries Prevention Intervention as Offered by Primary Care Providers, including Dentists

  • CMS 122v9: Diabetes: Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) Poor Control (> 9%)

  • CMS 124v9: Cervical Cancer Screening

  • CMS 125v10: Breast Cancer Screening (also health plan level BCSE HEDIS measure)

  • CMS 130v9: Colorectal Cancer Screening
