Healthcare Administrative Technology Association (HATA) puts forth bold recommendations regarding ONC Interoperability Roadmap

June 22, 2018

The Healthcare Administrative Technology Association (HATA), the national association representing the practice management systems (PMS) industry, recently published its recommendations regarding the ONC Interoperability Roadmap. This document is in response to the Office of the National Coordinator’s (ONC) 10-year plan for advancing interoperability as laid out in a document entitled, “Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap version 1.0 (Roadmap).”  The Roadmap, shaped by stakeholder input and public comments, supports the vision that ONC outlined in, “Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A 10-Year Vision to Achieve an Interoperable Health IT Infrastructure.”  HATA’s recommendations intend to spur innovation, stay ahead of information exchange needs, and promote cost-effective interoperability:

  • Information exchange that meets identified business and clinical needs of all stakeholders.
  • Convergence of the administrative and clinical data to meet verified business use cases, interoperability principles and the exploration of emerging administrative and clinical use cases.
  • Spur innovation and stay ahead of information exchange needs among stakeholders by the selection of a thought leader multi-stakeholder organization or collaborative of associations to monitor emerging trends and develop recommendations.

HATA’s complete recommendations to ONC are available on its website.

HATA is a strong supporter of interoperable administrative and clinical information exchange utilizing the HIPAA standard transactions and code sets and is actively demonstrating its support by developing its Certification in Healthcare Administrative Technology (CHAT). The CHAT program recognizes PMS vendors providing a standard level of privacy and security, as well as software functionality and features that focus on both electronic health records (EHR) and revenue cycle management (RCM) workflows.
