The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is continuing to focus on the testing of the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standards during the CMS HL7 FHIR® Virtual Connectathon taking place between July 20-22, 2021. Registration is FREE and will close on July 1, 2021. The three-day event will achieve the following:

  • Educate interested parties at CMS and within the health IT community about HL7 FHIR, FHIR implementation guides (IGs) developed by the Da Vinci Project and the CARIN Alliance and their real-world uses.
  • Support impacted stakeholders as they comply with the CMS and ONC interoperability rules.
  • Engage providers, payers, and partners to join the growing collaborative FHIR community and directly access associated free and open resources.

The CMS eCQM Standards Team will be participating in two tracks: Quality Measures and Quality Reporting.

Quality Measures Track: Test the use of FHIR-based eCQMs in Quality Measurement programs. The focus will be to calculate measure outcomes and create measure reports for a measure or measures of interest. Join the kickoff on Wednesday, July 7th 10 AM ET, click here for meeting details.

Quality Reporting Track: Test the use of the Data Exchange for Quality Measures (DEQM) IG for quality measure and gaps in care reporting use cases using FHIR-based eCQMs. Join the kickoff on Thursday, July 8th 2 PM ET, click here for meeting details.
