Interoperability Matters

Data Usability Workgroup

The Sequoia Project has assembled experts across a wide range of different stakeholders to develop specific and pragmatic implementation guidance on clinical content for healthcare stakeholders in order to facilitate health information exchange. This guidance, in the form of implementation guides covering identified priority use cases, will be readily adoptable by health information exchange vendors, implementers, networks, governance frameworks, and testing programs.

2021 Meeting Schedule: Weekly meetings, Thursday 3:00-4:00pm ET

Guidance and Enablement

The implementation guidance developed by the Data Usability Workgroup will target improvements necessary to enable semantic interoperability of health information and will build on existing work. Semantic interoperability will improve the usability of data received by end users within their workflows. Input from all relevant stakeholders will be essential to developing credible implementation guides for a specific use cases and ensuring stakeholder participation is a crucial organizational objective for the Workgroup.

Implementation Guide Development

The Data Quality Workgroup will develop three implementation guides focusing on data quality and addressing each of the following high-level use cases:

  • Provider-to-provider health information exchange
  • Provider-to-Public Health Agency information exchange
  • Healthcare entity-to-consumer information exchange
