Welcome to the NIEM Health Analysis Group!
The value of NIEM lies in its ability to exchange information across multiple domains and platforms. That kind of health interoperability has the potential to save lives. The nation has made great progress in EHR and PHR implementations, but there is a world outside of traditional clinical to clinical transactions (hospitals, doctors offices, walk-in clinics, etc.) that is often ignored. What happens when we’ve involved police, firefighters and ambulances? What about triaging patients after a natural disaster? How about exchanging opioid information with a judge? These “Edge Case” scenarios highlight a systematic breakdown in the ability for patient health information to be exchanged to the end user, and it isn’t practical to assume that these endpoints will be able to afford traditional health exchange systems and servers for these types of transactions…that is where the value of NIEM for Health information exchange is proven.
This group will evaluate “Edge Case” scenarios related to health, largely focused on Social Determinants of Health and the Opioid Epidemic. These cross-domain scenarios will be critical to the nation’s public health and safety. We will use this forum to identify, prioritize and then work through the details of these use cases to understand where NIEM can be of most help.
