Scope of coverage
The IG is specific to the US Human financial claims process across all healthcare disciplines, though the primary focus is inpatient and outpatient primary care. The content is developed by a mix of payor and EHR representatives.
One of the challenges in the US Healthcare environment is that clinicians are often unaware of the expectations of payer organizations around the delivery of care, requirements for pre-authorizations and other processes. The result is that payment can be delayed, changes must be made to therapy after initiation and/or additional overhead costs are incurred. Coverage Requirements Discovery FHIR IG Proposal (CRD) defines a standardized mechanism by which care delivery organizations and providers can query payers to find relevant guidance prior to care delivery.
While the CRD IG specifies the mechanism for querying the payer, it does not describe the format or guidance of the rules being returned by the payer. Many of the documentation requirements may be satisfied by retrieving information that already exists in a provider's EHR system. Providing a standardized mechanism for evaluating documentation requirements against known information for a patient has the ability to reduce burden on providers and office staff who currently must manually interpret this information.
Proposed IG realm and code
This specification will be maintained by the CDS work group once the Da Vinci project has completed initial development
Provides a mechanism for delivering and executing payer rules related to documentation requirements for a proposed medication, procedure or other service associated with a patient's insurance coverage.
This implementation guide has been developed by U.S. EHR, Payer and Provider organizations as part of the Da Vinci project
A open source reference implementation (RI) will be developed by The MITRE Corporation in support of Da Vinci. It is expected that this RI will be tested at the May 2019 WGM. Several EHR, Payer and Provider organizations are expected to implement this implementation guide or leverage the provided RI.
Requirements are drawn from payer organizations as part of Da Vinci discussions.
This guide will use the US Core, Da Vinci Coverage Requirements Discovery and SMART Application Launch Framework Implementation Guides.
