We will discuss the journey to Fast Healthcare Implementation Resources (FHIR®) for quality, the benefits of FHIR, implementation plans for electronic quality reporting using FHIR, roadmap goals, and stakeholder readiness. CMS also recently collaborated with Health IT Vendors to conduct a pilot implementation of FHIR for quality with a vision to streamline the future of quality submissions across our programs and will share pilot results and next steps.Chuck Taylor All Star
