Policy letter to Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology on ONC’s Draft U.S. Core Data for Interoperability and Proposed Expansion Process
UCSF’s Center for Digital Health Innovation recommends an approach and criteria for objectively selecting data classes for U.S. Core Data for Interoperability, candidate status, and emerging status. We also provide specific recommendations regarding listed and missing data classes. At the outset, CDHI also strongly supports adding clinical notes and provenance immediately to the Common Clinical Data Set, and strongly affirms ONC’s consideration of data classes that span the wide variety of use cases and target populations across the nation.
