General

To ensure the interoperability of healthcare information that allows the patient’s information to safely follow them through transitions of care, Utah adopts the use of the 2018 Interoperability Standards Advisory (ISA) for messages exchanged in the state.  The ISA process represents the model by which the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will coordinate the identification, assessment, and public awareness of interoperability standards and implementation specifications that can be used by the healthcare industry to address specific interoperability needs including, but not limited to, interoperability for clinical, public health, research and administrative purposes.

Purpose

The Interoperability Standards Advisory is meant to serve at least the following purposes:

  1. To provide the industry with a single, public list of the standards and implementation specifications that can best be used to address specific clinical health information interoperability needs. Currently, the ISA is focused on interoperability for sharing information between entities and not on intra-organizational uses.
  2. To reflect the results of ongoing dialogue, debate, and consensus among industry stakeholders, when more than one standard or implementation specification could be used to address a specific interoperability need, discussion will take place through the ISA public comments process. The web-version of the ISA improves upon existing processes, making comments more transparent, and allowing for threaded discussions to promote further dialogue.
  3. To document known limitations, preconditions, and dependencies, as well as to provide suggestions for security best practices in the form of security patterns for referenced standards and implementation specifications when they are used to address a specific clinical health IT interoperability need.

The ISA is designed to provide clarity, consistency, and predictability for the public regarding the standards and implementation specifications that could be used for a given clinical health IT interoperability purpose.

Applicability

This standard is applicable to Health Care providers, Clinical Laboratories and Third Party Payers as defined by Utah Code Annotated R380-70.

Implementation

The ISA can be accessed at https://www.healthit.gov/isa/sites/default/files/2018%20ISA%20Reference%20Edition.pdf

Implementation Date

The implementation date of this standard will be September 2018.
