This session will include an update on Person Matching, introduction of a vocabulary project idea, and a continuation of the engaging Privacy and Confidentiality conversation we held during Part 2 last week. In particular, we’re looking forward to hearing about the participation by NIC and HSLynk in MiHIN’s virtual InterOpathon last week. The event was titled “Ignite Interoperability: APIs and FHIR Heat Up,” and Unify’s track explored the transmission of Social Determinants of Health data across health and human services systems. During this session, we will experiment Zoom breakout rooms for small-group brainstorming sessions.
