Advancing Interoperability: Social Determinants of Health

ONC Workshop

Molly Rafferty 0 195

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is hosting the Advancing Interoperability: Social Determinants of Health Workshop, a one day virtual workshop on Monday, September 21, 2020. As part of ONC’s collaborative approach for Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), the objective of this workshop is to convene health care and human services providers from various professional societies to understand their approaches to integrating SDOH data into value-base care and to discuss tools to accomplish these goals and the challenges to reaching them. This workshop will also provide stakeholders information and tools needed for the development of the social determinants of health data management in clinical practice guidelines and maintenance of certification activities.

In the fall of 2019, four new Interoperability Needs were added to Section I: Social, Psychological, and Behavioral Data representing drug use, food insecurity, housing insecurity, and transportation insecurity of the Interoperability Standards Advisory (ISA).  Many of the standards or specifications are at production for the implementation maturity level and are still requesting feedback. Incorporating social determinants of health such as those included in the ISA in health care models is of increased interest when it comes to value-based payments. More payers are developing novel ways to address SDOH issues, however providers still struggle with the collection of SDOH data and how to use and share the data in an interoperable and beneficial way that is not burdensome. This workshop will provide attendees the opportunity to share any advancements in standards that are being used which may or may not include standards included in the ISA.

Enabling Services Data Collection: Documenting Health Center Interventions in a Value-Based Payment Environment

Hosted by the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations and Health Outreach Partners

In collaboration with Health Outreach Partners (HOP), AAPCHO continues to promote the importance of documenting social determinants of health (SDoH) interventions to demonstrate the value and scope of health center enabling services (ES). AAPCHO and HOP were joined by the Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) to highlight how state, regional, and national partners can leverage SDoH and ES data for Value-Based Payment (VBP).
Through a national webinar, participants learned useful strategies with tools and resources to successfully implement a standardized data collection methodology for the tracking and documentation of non-clinical data. In turn, health center stakeholders, including health center and Primary Care Association (PCA) staff, will be able to articulate or better demonstrate how they are using non-clinical, ES data for VBP. This national webinar was also be conducted for health center and PCA staff to share insights and recommendations on how they plan to use enabling services data for the transition to VBP in their local, state, or regional context.

3/16 HITEQ Highlights: Value Based Payment Basics and IT Readiness

Alyssa Thomas 0 6469

Despite changing political forces, health care is likely to continue to transform toward value based payment, which has long held bipartisan support. This webinar will review basic concepts of value based payment and IT-related requirements to engage in these models successfully.  The session will feature how one health center uses health IT to participate in value based payment models. Finally, participants will take a ‘tour’ of the HITEQ Center's Value Based Payment resource set in the context of how these resources can support health center engagement in value based payment models.
