Content Standards Workgroup

The Content Standards Workgroup will evaluate current content standards and propose incremental improvements that achieve greater interoperability. This group will recommend an appropriate balance between optionality and constraints in content standards. Additionally, this group will provide recommendation on key standards initiatives, some examples may include: recommendations regarding Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) in future health IT standards, support for common data elements (CDEs), used across use cases, granular data expression, promote structured approaches for patient interventions, genomic data, consumer activity. This group will also evaluate systems and standards that are resilient to big data approaches and develop a strategy that can accommodate the movement from document-centric standards to data-centric standards.
