On November 8, 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Library of Medicine (NLM) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are hosting a public workshop entitled "CDC/FDA/NLM/ONC/CMS Workshop on Promoting Semantic Interoperability of Laboratory Data."
The purpose of this workshop is to receive input from stakeholders about proposed approaches for adopting and implementing interoperability standards for laboratory data. Semantic interoperability, which refers to the ability of computer systems to exchange data with a clear, shared meaning, would enable consistent and accurate descriptions of in vitro diagnostic tests and results. It will also ensure accurate electronic health data reporting that could be used to advance evidence-based health care decision making.
