    Health Information Exchange Requires Nationwide Patient Data Matching Strategy
    The Electronic Health Record Association has called for a nationwide patient data matching strategy to ensure the accurate, timely, and efficient matching of patients with their healthcare data across different systems and settings of care.

    According to the organization, which represents 40 EHR companies, the problem is that patients often have medical records in multiple locations including hospitals, physician practices, laboratories, pharmacies and other settings.

    In February, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT released the “Patient Identification and Matching Final Report”--conducted by Audacious Inquiry, LLC--which found that methods of matching patient records have not been adopted uniformly across the industry.

      Hi Brand, thank you for inviting me. Your group is very good with ontologisms. Let me comment on health informatics integration. We believe ICD-10 will be critical. Our concept in Boston is called the ICDxPERT. It reaches out and links all health care strategies, proscriptions, events, and results. It does this by relating all health care activities to the right ICD-10 code.

      Send me an email and we can talk about this approach to healthcare informatics integration, if you like. -g

    Summary from the 30 July Analyst Forum By Katie Kennedy

    We had analysts at the event capturing content that we will summarize here over the next few weeks. And we are surveying 280 people who engaged with us to ensure we are capturing the most important results of the event as well as gaps this community believes we should be collectively tackling to improve the state of analysis. All of this will be shaping our reporting here.

    We are involved in two research collaborations (one with Columbia Univ. and the other with Harvard) that are investigating the use of Semantic MEDLINE and literature-based discovery to elucidate statistical correlations found in the EHR. –Tom Rindflesch

    Another good meeting with more pieces of the Big Data puzzle being placed on the table and related to each other.

    An ontology is an engineered artifact. As such good engineering principles and practices need to be applied. For situation that require many or complicated ontologies, the application of architecture needs to be applied prior to development. In the case of an 'enterprise' ontology, in addition to good (standard) engineering principles and practices, good ontological analysis techniques (e.g., rigidity, identity criteria, etc.) need to be employed otherwise the ontologies with run into situations where they can not be extended consistently. For example, the notion of 'performance' is very different from that of 'metric'.

    Looks like I will also have to join remotely this time, through the fuze meeting app. Is it possible to have a slice of pizza sent to me remotely (perhaps using the same fuze meeting id)?

    Background for Meetup (continued)

    Through data mining and predictive analytics, methods analogous to those used in the financial services sector, it should be possible to reduce significantly the estimated $60–100 billion of annual health care fraud in the US. - Let's do that to pay for the Big Data Science by the government.

    The biomedical research community will be a major consumer of data from an interoperable health data infrastructure - So lets let them led and pay for it like in geonomics.

    Background for Meetup

    I thought this report was excellent and I provided some key excerpts below to save time reading it, but I disagree with the conclusion from JASON that proposes a unifying software architecture for the exchange of health information, I think Big Data Science is needed as follows:

    Large amounts of data are collected on the various components of a health care enterprise....analyses can have great value in guiding how providers manage various medical conditions, and are a good example of the potential utility of HIT for improving health care - This would be Big Data Science for EHRs and Related Health Data

    JASON proposes a unifying software architecture for the exchange of health information - I propose Big Data Science on the data to see if we even need a unifying software architecture for the exchange of health information​

    So I hope someone at Monday's Meetup can explain to me why DoD's most visible semantic's program that I am aware of (DCMO with Dennis Wisnosky) did not seem to work on the most important semantic interoperability problems like below (in addition to Jens Pohl's excellent logistics work).

    August 8

  • Brand N.

    In May 2013 Secretary Hagel, following a 30-day review, decided that the DOD would seek a commercial solution [32]. DOD has pledged that the commercial solution it adopts will be compatible with and be able to exchange medical information with VistA, as well as other major commercial electronic medical information systems. It may turn out, and is perhaps likely, that the system the DOD adopts will be a commercial derivative of VistA. Whereas seeking a commercial solution seems like a sensible forward path, there are hazards that DOD should be aware of. Chief among these is treating this as a fixed procurement process and not taking into account the rapid evolution of technology and the changes that a robust health data infrastructure will bring to clinical practice and the delivery of health care. http://semanticommunity.info/Da...­

    Some Background Reading:

    3.5.3 VA and DOD Interoperability

    In 2008 the VA and DOD were directed through the National Defense Authorization Act to jointly develop some interoperable EHR capability. This failed and in 2009 the two entities created the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record initiative (VLER) [28]. Conceptually, VLER looks and sounds promising, but has yet to be fully implemented. In 2010, and again in 2011, joint initiatives to achieve some level of EHR interoperability between the VA and DOD were initiated. These efforts were to continue through 2017. However, after this long and expensive attempt to meet the Congressional mandate of interoperability, the VA and DOD recently announced that they would no longer pursue a single integrated electronic medical information system [29, 30, 31].

    Probably the most valuable part of the last meeting was Brand NIemann's explanation of how problems that David Blevins described came to exist. Brand's discussion suggests that a consistently and shared process framework is as important and maybe more important than the individual products (e.g., ontologies).
