AHDI helped launch the Health Story Project (originally CDA4CDT) to advocate the importance of narrative notes and to build a bridge from transcribing narrative-only notes to including structured data as needed for EMRs and eventually for Meaningful Use. The Project developed Consolidated-CDA standards and successfully advocated for their inclusion in Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements.
The Project became a HIMSS Roundtable in 2013, and Nick Mahurin is currently it's Chair. As C-CDA becomes increasingly known and accepted, technologies are being built around the standards to fill essential gaps in documentation practices.
Come to this webinar to get an update on the Project including recent accomplishments, implementation milestones, and how these developments will affect the medical language specialist workforce.
1. Workforce development: How the role of the MLS can and will morph to accommodate structured data.
2. Industry Health: How the legacy transcription industry can re-position itself to provide data in forms required by Meaningful Use.
3. Advocacy: How narrative is poised to make a come-back.
