Return to May 2017 Proposals

Attachments

Submitting WG/Project/Implementer Group

Attachments Work Group (AWG)

Justification

Electronic attachments are a high priority for processing claims and other payer/provider interactions. Current thinking has attachment submissions occurring via X12 messaging within the US, other countries have other mechanisms. However, there is substantial interest in experimenting with FHIR-based messaging for exchanging attachments. This track will explore the feasibility of this approach.

Proposed Track Lead

See Connectathon_Track_Lead_Responsibilities

  • Rick Geimer
    • Email: rick dot geimer at lantanagroup dot com
    • Skype: rgeimer
    • Co-leads, Paul Knapp, Durwin Day

Expected participants

  • BCBS
  • HCSC
  • BCBSAL
  • Anthem
  • Optum

Roles

Please include information here regarding how much advance preparation will be required if creating a client and/or server.

Payer

Plays the role of a payer who may request and receive attachments. This is loosely analogous to the "FHIR Client - Claims Attachment Requestor" and "FHIR Client - Claims Attachment Processor" roles in the Financial Management track, but with a focus on content instead of process.

Provider

Plays the role of a provider who may receive requests for attachments and send attachments (solicited or unsolicited). This is loosely analogous to the FHIR Client - Claims Attachment Submitter role in the Financial Management track, but with a focus on content instead of process.

Scenarios

For all scenarios below, the following types of attachments are allowed:

  • PDF attachment
  • Unstructured C-CDA attachment
  • Structured C-CDA attachment
  • C-CDA on FHIR attachment

Also remember to sign up on this spreadsheet

Here is a link to the main Connectathon 13 page with test servers, other tracks, etc.

Solicited

Action: Payor sends an attachment request to the provider. Onus is on the payer to create the staple between the request and the attachment. Provider must return the payer's electronic staple (i.e. ID) with the attachment.
Here is an example of a request for an attachment from a payer:
http://hl7.org/fhir/2016Sep/communicationrequest-example-fm-solicit-attachment.xml.html
Here is an example of a solicited attachment from a provider (the payload would point to the PDF, C-CDA, or C-CDA on FHIR attachment):
http://hl7.org/fhir/2016Sep/communication-example-fm-solicited-attachment.xml.html
Precondition: None
Success Criteria: Provider receives the request, responds with the attachment, payer receives the attachment and is able to view it in their system.

http://hl7.org/fhir/2016Sep/communication-example-fm-attachment.xml.html
Precondition: Prior agreement in place between payer and provider.

http://hl7.org/fhir/2016Sep/communication-example-fm-attachment.xml.html
The Payer will respond with a ProcessResponse containing a reference number and the outcome of the submission.
