Need to include the VistA.js effort as an example of how the policy has been implemented in the OSEHRA community.

National Drivers and Interoperability Demonstrations

Ioana Singureanu's picture

National guidance and regulatory requirements issued by CMS, ONC, and FDA affect all healthcare industry stakeholders and, implicitly they will affect Open-source Vista, its implementers, and the activities of the OSEHRA community going forward. Many of these national drivers require adoption and implementation of health IT standards.

It would be beneficial if the RFI could clarify how these national drivers will influence the priorities of the OSEHRA community:

  • How will the OSEHRA community engage with FDA and CMS to address the Universal Device Identifier (UDI), Implantable Device List/Registration,  and MACRA payment, merit-based reimbursement, and quality systems?  
  • What are the future plans for OSEHRA to engage with heath IT standard community to drive adoption of health standards including terminology (LOINC, SNOMED CT, RxNorm, and UCUM)?
  • Will Open-Source VistA participate in interoperability demonstration events (e.g. HIMSS Interoperability Showcase, IHE Connectathon, C-CDA Implement-a-thons, HL7 FHIR Connectathons) ?
  • How is OSEHRA planning to participate in the Social Security Number Removal Initiative (SSNRI)?
