Join the New Health Data Provenance ChallengeLast week, ONC announced a new challenge focused on health data provenance. The goal of this challenge is to understand where health data has traveled – from where the data originated and how it has been modified throughout its lifecycle. A total of $180,000 in prizes will be available in this two-phase challenge. Submissions for phase 1 are due Tuesday, May 16, 2017 by 11:59pm EST. Visit the Health Data Provenance Challenge website for more information.
Resource: Emergency Medical Services and Health Information ExchangeThe ability for emergency medical services (EMS) providers to access relevant health data is critical, especially for field paramedics and emergency staff. ONC recently released a document that explores how EMS and health information exchange (HIE) organizations can work together to improve data sharing in emergency situations.
