The discussion promises to be particularly engaging, as it brings together two topics that are now the subjects of projects that group participants are undertaking: cross-domain person-matching and developing a proof of concept for interoperability between health and human services (Project Unify). In recent conversations, it has become obvious that the two efforts are very complementary and need each other.
We will start out with a user story, which will be crafted to include at least two domains. Then we'll focus on finding the data elements that need to be shared by applications that access both domains. The application that is accessing such data will need to refer to the same individual in both domains. As the LGT group identifies the initial PoC domains, it will look for ways to implement APIs for at least the cross-domain person-matching. The goal for LGT is not to identify a single product that all will be using for name matching. Rather, we seek a set of APIs that any vendor could implement and have a product that implements the API be easy to “plug and play” in an overall cross-domain solution.
The discussion will be led by
- Dave Walsh: bringing technology from healthcare to Human Services;
- Pradeep Podila: exploring opportunities for facilitating cross-sector client linkages;
- Rita Torkzadeh: dedicated to advancing person-centered interoperability.
About Project Unify
The primary goal of Unify is to develop a prototype of a multi-domain Information Exchange that demonstrates how standards can facilitate interoperability between Human Services and Healthcare IT systems. Although there will be some differences between the two sectors’ requirements, the goals, challenges and most of the technical approaches to achieve interoperability likely would be the same or very similar. Project Unify will learn (and borrow) from the investments in technologies that already have been made for health care interoperability and apply them to human services. Learn more >>
