ADVault, Patient Generated Health Data Registry Project

ADVault participated in the HL7 FHIR Connectathon 14 on January 14-15, 2017.  During the Connectathon, ADVault demonstrated the ability to generate unstructured, Level 2 and Level 3 CDAs for Personal Advance Care Plan Documents implementing the HL7 standards. Then, ADVault demonstrated how a combination of Direct messaging and FHIR APIs can be used to create a registry/repository for non-clinical, patient-generated health data (PGHD).  In the C-CDA on FHIR and Attachments Tracks, the PGHD registry requested (communicationRequest) and received a PACP from a person (solicited communication), or received PACP information from the person (unsolicited communication).  Next, a healthcare provider or payer actor requested information on the person's PACP from the PGHD registry (communicationRequest).  The registry responded (solicited communication) by providing the requested information to providers and payers as consented.  ADVault is now working with Document Sources and Document Consumers to collect, store and deliver PGHD into the EMR.
