Query Health Pilot - Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health

MeHI, on behalf of the MDPHnet project team, proposed to incorporate ONC Query Health Initiative standards into MDPHnet. MDPHnet was perfectly aligned with all aspects of the Query Health Initiative, including development of the operational framework for the network, governance rules, architecture of the network, network administration, and implementation of a functional distributed network to enable population based querying by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. This effort provided important lessons learned that were directly relevant to the Query Health Initiative because MDPHnetused nearly all of the existing Query Health standards for distributed querying networks. MDPHnet is implementing a distributed querying network with several partners in Massachusetts to enable distribute population health querying by the MDPH. The project is using Version 3.0 of the PopMedNet software as the Query Health Policy Enablement Component (the same software used in the Query Health HIMSS demonstrations).
