ONC seeks comments on 2016 Interoperability Standards Advisory

The Office of the National Coordinator of Health IT has published its 2016 Interoperability Standards Advisory draft for comment.

The standards advisory seeks to identify, assess and solidify the "best available" interoperability standards and implementation specifications to help the industry fulfill clinical interoperability needs.

The ISA has three key purposes:

1. Provide the industry with a single list of standards and implementation specifications to best fulfill specific clinical health information interoperability needs,

2. Reflect results of continuous dialogue and debate when numerous standards or implementation specifications are at hand to help identify the best available, and

3. Document limitations, preconditions, dependencies and security patterns for standards and specifications.

The draft's focus is on clinical IT system interoperability, meaning no administrative or payment interoperability purposes are discussed.

The agency plans to publish a final advisory by the end of the year.
