PACIO Project (Post-Acute Care Interoperability) Seeks Participants (6/19)

By CMS - June 13, 2019

The PACIO Project (Post-Acute Care Interoperability), pronounced "passeeo", launched on February 26, 2019. The goal of this collaborative partnership is to establish a framework for the development of a Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) technical implementation guide(s) and Reference Implementations that will facilitate health information exchange through standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs). The objective of the PACIO Project is to use a consensus-based approach to advance interoperable health data exchange between post-acute care providers, patients, and other key stakeholders across the health care continuum with policy makers, standards organizations, and industry. This project is open to everyone, led by the MITRE Corporation, and participants include health IT vendors, providers, clinicians, researchers, standards organizations, CMS, ONC, and the VA.
