From Best Practices in Self-Monitoring Blood Pressure to Interoperable Data

1:00pm - 2:00pm Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W414C

Description

Clinicians are developing guidelines for capture of health information from individuals and devices outside of the clinic environment, but current available standards for consistently capturing, representing, and analyzing patient-generated data in the EHR are lacking. Target: BP is a national initiative formed by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Medical Association in response to the rising incidence of uncontrolled blood pressure. In 2017, Target: BP released hypertension clinical guidelines that provide a basis for the development of interoperable data structures and decision support tools that can improve clinician’s ability to use and understand patient-generated blood pressure data. This session will describe the approaches, challenges, and opportunities in the development of semantically interoperable data capture for self-measured blood pressure monitoring (SMBP) and utilization of those data in a SMART on FHIR app to deliver more actionable readings to clinicians in their EHR.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify challenges and opportunities in the development of semantically interoperable resources for capturing and analyzing health information
  • Recognize the value of aligning data capture and exchange operations with best practices in clinical care to generate clinically valid data
  • Describe HL7 FHIR and the challenges and benefits of using FHIR to exchange interoperable data
  • Develop a SMART on FHIR app to exchange patient-generated blood pressure data and deliver context for their use to clinicians
