ONC and FHA Demonstrations in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase
The upcoming Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference showcases some of themost forward-thinking health IT interoperability projects that are transforming the way health information is shared andutilized throughout the country.As part of HIMSS 2011, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT(ONC) and the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) will once again host a seriesof demonstrations within the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase. This year therewill be approximately 40 demonstrations highlighting how health practitionersare securely exchanging health data between doctor’s offices, hospitals,benefit providers, government agencies, and with other health organizations,all across America. There will be a particular emphasis on demonstrationsrelated to the Nationwide Health Information Network Exchange, the DirectProject, the S&I Framework, and CONNECT.The demonstrations within the ONC and FHA-dedicated area of the HIMSSInteroperability Showcase provide a range of examples of how nationwidehealth IT collaboration will help improve care for Americans.
Programs Demonstrated within the Showcase
Most of the demonstrations within the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase focus on programs that fall under the aegis of theOffice of Interoperability and Standards, namely the Nationwide Health Information Network Exchange, the Direct Project,CONNECT, and the S&I Framework.
Direct Project
Attendees will also see a series of eight demonstrations that highlight the use of Direct Project specifications. Launched inMarch 2010 as a part of the Nationwide Health Information Network, the Direct Project was created to specify a simple,secure, scalable, standards-based way for participants to send authenticated, encrypted health information directly toknown, trusted recipients over the Internet. Today, the Direct Project has more than 200 participants from over 60 differentorganizations, including EHR and personal health record (PHR) vendors, medical organizations, systems integrators,integrated delivery networks, federal organizations, state and regional health information organizations, organizations thatprovide health information exchange capabilities, and health information technology consultants.
The participation of any company or organization in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) andthe Federal Health Architecture (FHA) area within the HIMSS Interoperability showcase does not represent an endorsement by ONC,FHA or the Department of Health and Human Services.

CONNECT
A series of demonstrations will show how the CONNECT open-source software gateway supports health organizations securelyexchanging health-related information using nationally recognized standards – despite geographic location in the United States.Originally built by more than 20 federal agencies, CONNECT uses Nationwide Health Information Network standards andgovernance as part of its open-source software framework to connect providers, insurers, federal agencies, states, and othersinvolved in supporting health and healthcare. CONNECT is free of charge and is managed by the Federal Health Architecture andthe Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).
Nationwide Health Information Network Exchange
Attendees will be able to visit with many members of the Nationwide Health Information Network Exchange and see how theirprojects are working. Members of the Exchange are organizations that have satisfied the technical and legal requirementsfor participation, and they are already reaping the benefits of using harmonized standards and specifications as a basis fornationwide interoperability. As an example of the value of Exchange participation, the U.S. Social Security Administration, throughits partnership with MedVirginia, has been able to reduce turnaround time for medical disability determinations from an averageof 84 days to 46 days – a 45 percent improvement. Of these, a determination was made in 161 cases (about 3.1 percent) within48 hours of receipt.
S&I Framework
The Standards and Interoperability (S&I) Framework is an open government initiative focused on providing integrated contentand technical specifications that support the interoperable exchange of healthcare information nationwide. S&I Frameworkspecifications are guided by the healthcare and technology industry and include integrated functions, processes, and tools.The Framework supports national health outcomes and healthcare priorities, including Meaningful Use, the Nationwide HealthInformation Network, and the ongoing mission to create better care, better population health, and cost reduction throughdelivery improvements.

Demonstrations Overview
 
Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and the Federal Health Architecture
Demonstrations Occurring within the ONC and FHA Area of theInteroperability Showcase
The Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER)
Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, Kaiser Permanente, and MedVirginia
President Barack Obama, along with Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, announced the VirtualLifetime Electronic Record (VLER) initiative in April 2009 to enhance the continuity of care for our Service men and womenby ensuring that electronic records will transition along with them and remain with them forever. VLER will result in increasedinformation available to clinicians and healthcare organizations, which will in turn improve the continuity of services and care forour Service Members and Veterans. Initially, VLER will permit authorized users to share health information and eventually enablesharing of electronic health, benefits and administrative information for Service Members and Veterans. This demonstration willhighlight progress being made toward achieving interoperability within the VLER initiative.
Authorized Release of Information to a Trusted Entity
Kaiser Permanente, MedVirginia and Social Security Administration
The demonstration will show how the Social Security Administration requests information from medical providers (KaiserPermanente and MedVirginia) based on authorization to release information and receives the information using the NationwideHealth Information Network. The information flow is seamless and does not require any human intervention. This exchange ofinformation dramatically reduces the time required for the exchange compared to the traditional process.
Claim Status Transactions Over Nationwide Health Information Network Using CORE Connectivity
CAQH Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE), Community Health Information Collaborative (CHIC), and Noridian
This CAQH CORE, Noridian, CHIC HIE-Bridge and ApeniMED (formerly known as MEDNET) interoperability demonstrationshows how healthcare administration is simplified through collaboration and alignment with national initiatives. Building onlast year’s demonstration in which CORE and CMS’s Medicaid IT Architecture (MITA) collaborated to demonstrate eligibilitytransactions (270/271) using the CORE Eligibility and Connectivity Rules transmitted from an HIE to multiple Medicaid systemsover the Nationwide Health Information Network, this year the collaboration continues to show claim status transactions(276/277) from CHIC HIE-Bridge to Medicare via Noridian, a Medicare contractor, over the Nationwide Health InformationNetwork using the CORE Phase II Connectivity Rule.
Patient-Centric Access Control Policy Demonstration Using Nationwide Health InformationNetwork Standards
Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT
The Nationwide Health Information Network expands the frontier for securely sharing patient health information betweenhealthcare organizations. As HIE’s and other health-related service providers begin to share patient medical information, itremains a top priority to ensure patient privacy is maintained in accordance with the patient’s wishes. This demonstrationillustrates how a HIE could implement a dynamic Access Control Policy service, which is administered and reviewed by thepatient. In the demo, attendees will observe a patient granting a HIE permission to share medical data with a health careprovider. Later the patient will chose to revoke the permission of sharing medical data with the health care provider.
