The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) Structured Data Capture (SDC) initiative is developing and validating a standards-based data architecture so that a structured set of data can be accessed from EHRs for other appropriate purposes, including collecting and transmitting data for patient safety and adverse event reporting.
CHPSO co-chairs the ONC workgroup implementing incident reporting and FDA adverse event reporting. Our workgroup is now looking for organizations interested in testing automated capture of relevant data for these reports.
Pilot sites will help advance testing and validation of standards that will be included in Meaningful Use and Electronic Health Record (EHR) Certification Criteria, and benefit by being an early adopter of new functionality facilitating reporting of and learning from adverse events. The pilot participation checklist instructs you on how to express interest in participating in the structured data capture initiative for adverse event and patient safety event reporting.
