HL7 Da Vinci Project Overview with a Focus on Quality Measures

  • May 07, 2020
  • 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET
  • online

As the shift to value-based care continues, the need for payer-provider collaboration has become essential. Founded in 2018, Da Vinci leverages the combined power of HL7® FHIR®, subject matter experts, and leading providers, payers, and vendors to improve the overall flow of clinical data between providers and payers for quality measurement, transparency of patient coverage, prior authorization, and identification of risk-based contract members. Although many Da Vinci participants have contributed to the development of the requirements and implementation guides, the new emphasis should be about how to implement these use cases for organizational benefit.

Hear from the Da Vinci program lead who will provide an overview of the status, maturity, and resources available of the over 14 use cases in HL7’s standards development process and emerging implementations. During the second half of the webinar, Da Vinci participants will take a deeper dive into the clinical quality measure use case to describe how they formed their project, implemented the technical requirements and how this project holds promise to reduce the burden and increase the scale of data exchange for value-based care.

Attendees will learn: 

  • Learn about the Da Vinci project and the key use cases
  • Understand how some key Da Vinci use cases will address the new ONC and CMS interoperability rules
  • Get a deeper dive in how to plan, organize and deliver a specific Da Vinci use case – Data Exchange for Quality Measures (DEQM)
