TEFCA, Interoperability, and Social Determinants of Health with ONC's Micky Tripathi

March 4, 2022: Micky Tripathi, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at the ONC joins Bill to discuss TEFCA, USCDI, Electronic Prior Authorization RFI, Information Blocking and Health Equities by Design. What do we need to know about TEFCA? What do healthcare providers need to do as a result of this work? USCDI V3 added some new data elements in the Health Status, Procedures, Health Insurance, and Patient Demographics data classes. Why is USCDI important? What stage are we at with information blocking/sharing? What is the driver for RFI for Electronic Prior Authorizations? What exactly is health equity by design? How can people participate in this work?

Key Points:

00:00:00 – Intro

00:05:30 – TEFCA – Trusted exchange framework and common agreement

00:25:00- 80% of US based individuals have access to a smart health card

00:27:30 – Information blocking should be called information sharing

00:37:45 – I would estimate that half of America would still be on paper records if it weren’t for meaningful use
