This three hour workshop will be presented in two parts. In the first, the semantic interoperability (S&I) framework of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONCHIT) will be presented. Details of the semantic structures of the ONC standard terminology set and a maintenance framework for scheduled release and update of i2b2 community metadata for deployment of ONC standards will be presented. In the second phase, two i2b2 research datamart managers will discuss the analytical, programmatic and data management issues involved in the extraction of structured, coded datasets from the Electronic Health Record into i2b2 Emphasis will be given to deployment and support of ONC standard terminologies of SNOMED CT, RXNORM, LOINC and NDC as well as HIPAA transaction sets including ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, CPT-4 and HCPCS type 2. The two organizations have EpicĀ® and CernerĀ® respectively as their EHRs, and will provide a library of software resources pertinent to their platforms to the attendees who employ those EHRs in their enterprise.

Learning Objective 1: Appreciate the features of the Standards and Interoperability framework published by the ONC including those terminology standards to be employed in the EHR

Learning Objective 2: Recount the challenges to obtaining historical, comprehensive and complete terminology sets for ONC terminology standards and assembling ontologies of those terminologies useful as query tooling for i2b2 metadata
