Bulk FHIR Will Change What Payers Expect From Providers

Don Rucker, MD, 1upHealth’s Chief of Strategy Officer and former ONC chief, recently sat down with HealthLeaders to discuss how Bulk FHIR and newly maturing standards for healthcare data interoperability will make providers more accountable to payers for the overall quality of care they provide.

Key Takeaways:

  • Data sharing via Bulk FHIR will allow payers to judge health of populations more effectively than traditional quality standards.
  • Standards work follows a Spring 2020 ONC rulemaking to implement population-friendly FHIR interoperability.
  • Failure of traditional quality measures stored in CDC data silos during the COVID-19 pandemic is further evidence that a new interoperability approach is necessary.
