The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has released the draft for the next version of the United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) – version 4.
This draft includes data elements that focus on patient care and facilitating patient access while promoting equity, reducing disparities, supporting underserved communities, integrating behavioral health data with primary care, and supporting public health data interoperability.
With the proposed addition of 20 new data elements across one new and eight existing data classes, USCDI v4 has the potential to be even more comprehensive with a total of 112 data elements in 19 data classes.
