Upcoming Events


MHDC DGC Deep Dive: Physical Therapy

The DGC regularly holds deep dives into specific topics related to health data and interoperability. These topics will fall into two categories: 1) types of data and 2) types of care with special needs. These meetings are public and bring the community together to look at data collected, industry workflows, and improvements that could be made related to data standardization and interoperability. This meeting will focus on data collection and workflows related to physical therapy in outpatient and inpatient settings by independent clinics, large chains, and hospitals and other general acute care settings. We will look at industry activity around standardization of physical therapy data, how it gets collected, and how it is exchanged.
