ONC HITSC Clinical Operations Workgroup Continues Discussion on Image Sharing Use Cases and Standards

On August 29, the ONC HIT Standards Committee (HITSC) Clinical Operations Workgroup members met virtually to continue their discussion on technical standards related to image sharing. The meeting featured a presentation on image sharing use cases and standards by Dr. David Clunie, editor of the DICOM standard and co-chair of the IHE Radiology Technical Committee.

Previously, the HITSC Clinical Operations Workgroup heard from RSNA informatics representatives on June 14, the RSNA pilot lead as well as the ACR IT and Informatics Committee chair on June 28, and lifeIMAGE representatives on July 19. The workgroup held additional internal discussions on July 26 and August 9.

The HITSC Clinical Operations Workgroup will continue these discussions and eventually report its findings on use cases and associated specifications/standards for image sharing to the full HITSC.  The full HITSC can choose to use that information in standards/certification criteria recommendations for future stages of Meaningful Use.
