The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) will be hosting a follow up to the “Healthcare Provider Directory Workshop” hosted by ONC and the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) in April 2016. Since then ONC and FHA have convened a Technical Learning Community (TLC), several Tiger Teams and have developed an HL7 FHIR Validated Healthcare Directory FHIR Implementation Guide which was Balloted and accepted for STU4.
The 2019 Workshop will be assessing advances in provider directory standards and focus on the implementation of a common directory standard. Specifically, the objectives for this workshop include: identifying innovations, best practices, and lessons learned from existing directory implementations; sharing the Validated Healthcare Directory Implementation Guide with stakeholders; and discussing implementation considerations related to the Validated Healthcare Directory Implementation Guide, including: governance, sustainability, leadership, and legal. Lastly, we will document barriers and actions or mitigation plans to address those barriers.
Attendance via a Windows, Mac, iOS, or Android device is encouraged as dial-up/listen only will limit your ability to participate.
