  • Project Approval for Public Health Case Report Update – John Loonsk here to discuss. He describes the scope and purpose of the project. Two step process: first step sends initial core message from an EHR to public health, and 2) public health can request additional information through a process like structured data capture. Case reporting is in the NPRM for meaningful use stage 3 and in the ONC’s certification rule. This project is to help develop an implementation guide for the C-CDA core initial message. Austin expressed questions/concerns around the project coming in late in the stage 3 process, considering that everything else has been in progress for months or years. John L. states that there is no structured data capture standard for case reporting referenced in NPRM. This project is to develop a tight core IG that is public health friendly that EHRs can do readily. Relative to timing, he feels they are well positioned to produce this quickly. Austin wonders why we’re not looking to FHIR for this. Ed wonders if the data elements are straightforward; John responds affirmative. John reports they are open to FHIR but this is a pressing short term need and FHIR is not fully sanctioned for this activity at this point.
