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.
