ADVANCE DIRECTIVES DEEP DIVE
The Data Governance Collaborative (DGC) at MHDC is a collaboration between payer and provider organizations convened to discuss, design, and implement better ways to standardize and share health related data. The DGC incorporates industry standards and automation as much as possible for exchange among payers, providers, patients/members, and other interested parties who need this data.
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.
The next DGC deep dive will cover advance directives and related workflows and data. Massachusetts supports four types of advance directives:
In addition, other types of advance directives are available throughout the United States and maybe discussed as appropriate.
This meeting will focus on data collection and workflows. We will look at industry activity around standardization of advance directives nationally and how they might apply to Massachusetts as well as interoperability of forms and related data.
We look forward to your help gathering information about the current state of and future needs of advance directives and related data within the healthcare ecosystem. Please join us.
For those of you looking for the next SDOH deep dive, we feel that allowing the industry move forward a bit before our next discussion makes sense. We will hold the second installment in a few months.
