Use Case Factory for Standard Creation of Health Information Sharing Use Cases

The Use Case Factory is a lean-manufacturing-oriented approach to build health information Use Cases, providing a standard, scalable approach for capturing ideas, identifying priorities and developing the technical and legal framework required to share health information among approved participants.

Through the Use Case Factory, Michigan has created a road map to prioritize where to convene stakeholders and focus resources, what kinds of Use Cases need to be developed, what technical capabilities are needed internally and with partners, and how best to pilot and release new Use Cases.

This lean-driven, continuous process improvement approach to developing Use Case data-sharing widgets brings a clarity of focus to the process that has yielded increased efficiency as we move from our initial group of priority Use Cases to a wider release of Use Cases across a variety of segments and disciplines.
