COVID-19 Lab Orders and Results to Diameter Health Mapping

Diameter Health is a widely used 3rd party application that consumes primarily CCD/CCDAs and provides automated data quality uplifting, semantic normalization and quality metric reporting for healthcare organizations. For purposes of COVID-19 tracking, lab orders and results are extremely important, but CCD/CCDA's may not be a good source for this information. Zen Healthcare IT has developed code to map HL7v2 Lab Feeds to the Diameter Health API to help support COVID-19 related projects. We are currently rolling this out for a County in Northern CA and have previously deployed HL7v2 mapping to Diameter Health for other HIEs. We want other users of Diameter Health to know that this approach can be deployed quickly to fill in any data gaps related to COVID-19 reporting needs. Zen's approach makes use of Mirth (Nextgen) Connect (open source or commercial versions) which speeds deployment.
