ONC and the Federal Health Architecture Hosting a Healthcare Provider Directory Workshop
ONC and the Federal Health Architecture are hosting The Provider Directory Workshop on April 5 and 6 to take a deep dive into provider directory standards and solutions. The goal of the Workshop is to help health IT developers and others working on provider directory standards exchange ideas and potential solutions that can further the flow of health information. We expect the Workshop will facilitate a productive dialogue that will encourage attendees to take action to help address directory related challenges.
The Workshop will focus on interoperability, data quality, existing and evolving standards, and other technical aspects, but will consider non-technical (governance, sustainability, etc.) factors as appropriate.
Dates: April 5, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm & April 6, 8:30 am - 3:00 pm | Location: The MITRE Corporation, McLean, VA. For more information, please contact us at Daniel Chaput or visit the registration page.
