A joint HRSA-ONC initiative is supporting interoperability and data exchange.
The new data interoperability standard adds classes for health status, accessibility and health insurance information.
The two agencies are working together on USCDI+, electronic prior authorization improvements and more.
Amid data challenges, CDC and ONC are working to modernize and drive interoperability.
With social determinants of health and other new data standards, ONC hopes to increase health equity in the care setting.
National Coordinator for Health IT Micky Tripathi notes next year will see pay off for recent strides in data interoperability.
